The products can be in modern or classic style. They are sculpted using a unique material block, more blocks of the same marble type or blocks of different marbles in case of polychrome work which is an ancient artistic decoration technique. The different blocks are installed together in our workshop before the delivery or assembled during the manufacturing.

Human Figures

We can realize sculptures with natural realistic measures, reduced or enlarged on request:

  • anthropomorphic with complete figure
  • half-bust
  • heads
  • other parts of the body
  • commemorative busts

Normally, the work which represents the human figure is created with indirect method: first of all we realize a clay model, eventually on a scale, with all the proportions to define the different aspects, the contour and in order to receive the executive approval by the customer. Than it is possible to proceed on the selected marble block bringing back the points of greatest protrusion and gradually defining the details.

 

We have realized a sculpture of 2,5 meters in Carrara white marble representing Atlante, figure of the Greek mythology, which has been used to cover and to hide the hydraulic and electrical systems of a monumental fountain. View the case history

Commemorative sculptures

We can create commemorative busts, both for the privates and for the public institutions. In these cases it is very important to have as much photos as possible regarding the face in the foreground of the person to honor, preferably related to the age you want to represent including the profile, the frontal and the from behind views in order to obtain a final result which will be realistic and similar to the original one. Sometimes these works are matched and completed with bas reliefs and marble plates on which we engrave or chisel the writing in bas relief or high relief, customized with the more adapted character to the style of the work. On request, the writing can also be painted with suitable and weatherproof colors if the bust has to be placed outside.

 

Purity of the white to enhance the elegance of the details

The white marble is the most appreciated in the sculpture because it is the most pure and resistant stone. It has a low index of refraction which allows to the light to penetrate before to be reflected, giving a special brightness and a waxen effect similar to the warm coloring of the human skin. The prestigious Bianco Carrara is extracted in Italy; it is a typical uniform white marble which may have fine veins of matt grey colour.
The veins are decorative but at the same time they represent the weak point of the marble: they are made of wastes more or less compact of various origin, with different hardnesses and colorations, which can appear in the fragile points of the sculpture, such as on the face creating in time a possible break. This is a characteristic to be loved because it is a peculiarity of the natural raw materials.

 

Animal Figures

They represent the animals in individual parts or chimera and sometimes they are reconsidered and interpreted according to the specific period to which they relate.
We create sculptures such as:

  • lions, in different positions and dimensions, for villas entrances
  • horse heads as decorative object
  • various animals for garden furnishings as turtles to be placed on the lawn or doves to decorate fountain sinks
  • over the years we have realized innumerable typologies of the Lion of Saint Mark such as: winged lion, with sword, with book, etc. The lion is the emblem of the Serenissima Republic which has governed for almost thousand years in Venice and in the Adriatic Sea.

 

We’ve sculpted a Saint Mark’s lion with dimensions of 300 x 120 x h 150 cm in a unique marble block. View the case history

Religious Figures

We can create holy marble sculptures for religious locations of every type such as sculptures for public monuments, churches and private locations.

 

Bases

For every sculpture we also plan and realize the stand, the base, the column or the appropriate pillar to support and to raise it, matching the most suitable material to the location where it will be placed: interior, exterior or subjected to bad weather.

The sculpture is the activity and the result of the aesthetic expression of the human soul.
