This female torso is carved from a variety of white marble from the Petacchi quarry in the mountains above the famous town of Carrara, Italy. Michelangelo insisted on using Carrara marble for his works, as have sculptors down through the ages. It is beautiful to work, from an artist’s perspective and it is equally beautiful as a finished sculpture. I have carved the figure in a dynamic pose, as if she is reaching high for something. The matte finish of the marble gives the stone the ability to hold shadow, yet is wonderfully smooth to the touch.
