Description

    "Ruin Marble" and Dinosaur Bone Wall Picture
    Stone Source: Italy & Utah, USA
    Artist: Konstantin Libman

    This unique piece looks more like a framed desert landscape from Arizona than a natural rock. However, it is, in fact, rare "Ruin Marble" also known as "Landscape Stone" from Italy. This long, rectangular piece features this prized material, which was popular during the Italian Renaissance, cut geometrically then surrounded by matching sections of stunning Dinosaur Bone to create a finished framed wall picture. The back is finished with hard black Diabase (Dolerite) and two metal fixtures which facilitate wall hanging. The piece also comes with a custom wooden box for safekeeping. This is a unique piece of art from all natural material.
    Overall Measurements: 10.83 x 3.15 x 0.28 inches (27.50 x 8.00 x 0.71 cm)

    [Scale: 1 inch, with mark at 1 cm]


    Estimate: $1,000 - $1,500.
