Technical Description

The Cloak with its plinth is currently located in Studio Michelangelo in Carrara were it was created. The nearest ports for container vessels are La Spezia and Livorno. The nearest airfield, which can accommodate large planes, is at Pisa.

CLOAK: The sculpture is a monolith of 50 tons, sculpted in- and outside into a bloc of originally250 tons  of white Carrara Statuario marble from Cava Amministrazione, situated in the bacino Ravaccione in Carrara (Cave Michelangelo).

The quarry has supplied since Antiquity the marble for Roman monuments and Renaissance and Baroque masterworks, like Michelangelo’s Pieta and David, and Bernini’s Angels.

The Cloak is 430 cm (170 in) high, 280 cm (110 in wide) and 380 cm (150 in) deep,

PLINTH: Two superposed plinths composed of 22 marble blocks from the quarry of the Cloak.

The first: 280 x 280 in (700 x 700 cm), height 8 in (20 cm), and a weight of 25 tons and the second 200 x 200 in (500 x 500 cm), height 16 in (40 cm), 30 tons, carved in its interior.

Exterior and interior lighting can be integrated into the plinth.

SPECIAL FEATURES: Largest sculpture ever carved into a single block of marble; the first sculpted also in its interior; and the largest marble surface ever covered by subtle folds.

The interior space, conceived for meditation, radiates a special magnetism and energy.
