— Statuario marble from the famous Polvaccio
quarry, that dates
back to the Roman Republic of the first
It was from this marble that Trajan’s Column was carved, as
well as many
famous statues, including the Palatine Apollo. Later,
this marble for some of his greatest works, such as the Tomb
II and the Pieta. Carrara Statuario is a warm, ivory-white
occasional flecks of gray. In part, the beauty of this marble
its translucency — it accepts light to a depth of 1 in. or
more. It is
very receptive to the whole range of tools and does not break
ways when carved. It is also highly receptive to fine detail.
it is a joy to work.
