This form is carved from a slender piece of Scaglione Alabaster. I obtained this piece from the 'cava' near the ancient, Italian walled city of Volterra.
In a country blessed with famous marbles and alabaster, Scaglione alabaster is highly sought after for its beautiful translucence.
The glowing beauty of the stone inspired my carving of its subject, 'nubility'.
You are most welcome to arrange a time with me to visit my Sydney studio, in a COVID safe way, so you can see the sculpture before you buy it.
The price quoted is for pick-up at the studio door and I can arrange prices for packing and transport if needed too.
