    stunning life size four seasons marble garden statues

    A truly magnificent set of four lifesize 'Four Seasons' multi-colour marble statues set upon marble stands. These charming maidens are hand-carved from solid blocks of Italian carrara marble and are sure to make an impact and become a talking point wherever they are placed, either inside or outside of your home. The craftsmanship is second to none and these pieces are truly something special. Each approx H 220 x W 65 x D 42 cm Carrara marble, sometimes spelled Carrera marble, is a type of white or blue-grey marble popular for use in sculpture and building decor. It is quarried at the city of Carrara in the province of Massa-Carrara (Tuscany, Italy). Carrara marble has been used since the time of Ancient Rome; the Pantheon and Trajan's Column in Rome are constructed of it. Many sculptures of the Renaissance, such as Michelangelo's David, were carved from Carrara marble. For Michelangelo at least, Carrara marble was valued above all other stone, except perhaps that of his own quarry in Pietrasanta. The Marble Arch in London and the Duomo di Siena are also made from this stone, as are the interiors of Manila Cathedral, the cold-white marbles of the Sheikh Zayed Mosque and the campus of Harvard Medical School.
