Church Statuary - Marble
Sculpted by experienced craftsmen in Italy
During the Renaissance, marble was considered to be the most precious material because of its timeless beauty. With its visual impact and incredible quality, it is still just as popular today. Demetz Art Studio uses only the highest quality marble from the quarries of Tuscany. This type of marble is nearly impervious to the elements.
The stone carving tools used today haven’t changed much since the time Michaelangelo created his masterpieces. The stone is first hammered with a pitching hammer and then sculpted with special pointing tools and files. The marble art is created from a model in scale, a maquette, using a three-dimensional pantograph designed to make proportional calibrations using fixed points.
