Cloak Creation

Cloak Creation

It is a sculpture made from the material used for Michelangelo’s David and Bernini’s Angels, the white Carrara marble of Cave Michelangelo, crystalline rock of the highest quality.

It is the most mammoth sculpture ever sculpted into one single block of 250 tons, a giant gemstone. It is carved in its interior to allow experiencing the energy and the purity of marble, inductive to meditation and healing of the soul.

The creator of this masterwork is a widely acknowledged artist, laureate of the Michelangelo, Dali, and Kafka Prize, the Golden Medal of the City of Prague, an Honorary Professor of the National Sculpture Academy of China, and more.

Like the Philosopher’s Stone, the central symbol of the mystical terminology of alchemy, symbolizing perfections at its finest, enlightenment, and heavenly bliss, the sculpture is conceived as the universal symbol of conscience, tolerance, and peace.
There is only one original available, impossible to reproduce a second time.
