In fact, nothing comes closer to an original hand carved marble sculpture than the Santini replicas from Italy. Using white marble from the Northern Italian quarry of Carrara, the Santinis have learned how to retain the finest details and characteristics of the originals. The Carrara marble is chrushed to create the marble resin used by the master sculptors from Santinis of Italy. The white pieces age gracefully and often attain a lovely warm patina reminiscent of ivory and many are delicately painted in pastel colors and finished by individual artisans. The majority of the Santini Collection of bonded marble statues is elegant and classical in nature.
