Majestic white marble mask, it comes from a Venetian villa, maybe from 18th century.
Made with a peculiar marble rich in sulfur which, while carved, causes sparks: this is the reason why in old times it was called devil’s marble.
The work depicts the face of the god Neptune, with two dolphins below. A one of a kind sculpture, of great value and exclusive.
Carved with maniacal care and precision of details, it can also be used as a fountain mouth.
The marble veining is spectacular and very hard to find nowadays; has a beautiful patina.
High-quality, one-of-a-kind lot.
In excellent overall condition and intact.
It will be delivered in a wooden crate with proper packaging.
Affordable, safe and tracked shipping worldwide.
