“The way it is” is an autonomous sculpture made in a type of marble stone called ‘Rojo Alicante’.
The back of this sculpture has been left natural. This means that the crystallized parts are still clearly visible. It looks like there is a thick layer of granulated sugar over it. It is wonderful to preserve this in order to emphasize and respect what Mother Nature has left behind for us after 60 million years.
Material: Rojo Alicante (Red Marble)
Measurements: H. 67 x W. 50 x D. 15 cm
