Marble is the most popular material for sculptures of all times.
The greatest popularity stays after Italy marble – famous white sculpture marble is extracted near Carrara in Tuskany. For many centuries Carrara marble is known as a very unusual material, one of the world miracles – it can transmit light on the 3 cm depth! Michelangelo Buonarroti used to work with it. It’s white, brilliant, easy to grind – nowadays this stone is used for most complex and refined works in sculpture. Parian yellow marble, extracted in Greece, is also very famous, it was used by ancient greek sculptors, and their works we admire today. The main characteristic of marble encrypted in its’ name – from greek “marmaros” means “sparkling stone”.
Exactly this ability to shine in sun lights, to show unrepeatable play of light made ancient greeks to set eyes on this material, build dozens of temples from it, create statues, which gracefulness and plasty we admire after hundreds of years.
Besides that, marble has several more features, that makes it possible to stay the most popular sculpture material: processing convenience; marble is plasty, easy to polish and grind; it’s elastic enough and isn’t cracking from first beat, giving an opportunity to carve arts of different forms; it’s long-lived – white marble shows its’ “age changes” after 100-150 years.
