  • We make sculptures and works in marble on commission. Slight variations can be determined by the artistic workmanship and the use of precious natural materials.
  • Carrara marble has a pearly white background tone, slightly cloudy with more or less present and evident grayish intrusions and points. Rosso Francia is a historic French marble with a bright red color, arabesque with elegant white veins that bind to the color of Carrara marble. The result is an evident yet balanced chromatic contrast that makes this work imposing and suitable for luxury contexts, to enhance antique furnishings or modern living rooms.
  • The origin of the bust in the history of art is very ancient. Originally the word bustum was used to indicate the place where the corpses are burned and buried. In a translated sense, the word “bust” was used to mean the effigy of a person. On a symbolic level, the bust expresses the desire to preserve the living and real memory of the person in the portrait. In an image in which the face represents the compendium of moral and physical qualities and the head the seat of his soul.
