Pantaleo Musarò is an Italian ceramist who is interested in psychology and human behaviour and character traits.

The series show us how humans try to hide their vulnerability by behaving in a certain way.
The Snob represents someone with an attitude of superiority, who frowns upon others. A plexiglass case puts emphasis on the his contempt towards the outside world. The figurine is hand sculpted in Italy, the nose is covered In 24 carat venetian gold leaf.
