Cathedral Hands By Auguste Rodin Statue

Statue.com proudly features the work of The Egregia Italian Collection. This line represents one of the most prestigious museum-quality sculptures in the world. If traveling aboard you will find many reproduction of statuary from this gallery. In fact, nothing comes closer to an original hand carved marble sculpture than the Egregia replicas. When you purchase an Egregia, you can count on receiving nothing but the best, closest to the original piece of art.

The original models of the sculptures were created by A. Giannelli, founder of Egregia. The firm is located in Volterra the heart of Italy’s alabaster district. Giannelli devoted much of his life to sculpture and eventually opened his own studio in 1944, supplying pieces to the Allied Forces.  Giannelli has been commissioned to create busts by the United States, Kenya and Boston University.

The Egregia pieces Statue.com carries have been crafted out of the models Giannelli sculpted. The Egregia factory produces sculptures of  recomposed stone, consisting of alabaster and marble powder and resin. Each sculpture is then finished with care by the artisans of Italy’s Egregia Workshop, providing excellent durability, quality and detail.

Moses by Michelangelo

Moses by Michelangelo

While visiting Pietrasanta Italy, a town nestled below cavernous quarry pits, I heard a stone carver say that sometimes the streams coming  down the mountain run white.  That image has stayed with me, although  I only saw the streams run white in my imagination.  But it was still something,  to be able to look up towards  those  Appenine mountains,  from whence Michelangelo himself,  had  chosen the  white marble to be cut for his Moses statue and the unfinished Slaves.

Florentine Pieta

Florentine Pieta

With a beautiful resourcefulness, the modern Italian artisan has created a material for casting statues which uses this powdered marble, residue of the  huge quarry industry.   It is sometimes  refered to as bonded marble or oxolyte. This  beautiful white material is used to perfection in the statues made by  Egregia, Kozmolux and the Santini  statuaries,  available in the US through Statue.com.

We are pleased to make available to you, a huge selection  of bonded marble statues, still cast by artisans in these traditional workshops in Italy.  Most are  available to ship out of our U.S. warehouse  immediately.  Larger speciality pieces (like the Florentine Pieta at right) can be cast to order and created especially for you in Italy.
