Harlequin is one of the classic characters from the Commedia dell'Arte, which appeared in Italy in the 16th century. Lladro took its inspiration from this character to create a classic piece yet with elements that give it an innovative twist.
The Harlequin's colorful diamond pattern costume is lent special importance. The distinctive relief makes the diamond patches seem layered on a synthesized body, where the details are downplayed to attract our attention to the expression on his face.
The spectrum of colors and the harlequin’s expression conjure up wistful melodies inspired by his love for Colombia.
