Hand Painted Marble Green Apple Sculpture in Real Size.
The apple is a divine gift, a symbol of perfection and beauty, which Paris decided to give to Aphrodite, defining her aesthetic supremacy over Hera and Athena. Youth apples are also associated with eternal and immortality, which is why New York is given the name: “The big apple”. The fruits or fruit baskets on display are called “Still life”, with this name any cut flower or fruit picked, therefore no longer joined to the living plant. These elements have always been favored by major artists for their paintings, such as the great Caravaggio. On the symbolic level they want to indicate the transience of life in the face of the passing of time.
Marble is an elegant natural stone, which, painted by hand, gives this object an original and unconventional look, a truly unique piece.
