Stoned Donkey, Paonazzo Marble Sculpture Made in Italy

Estimated Production Time7-8 weeks

About

The Stoned Donkey is a marble sculpture entirely made in Italy with Italian Paonazzo marble coming from the Vanelli's family quarries. The sculpture is a mix of advanced technologies and craftsmanship, thanks to the five axes modeling robot and the final hand finishing. The project is conceived by the Italian designer Matteo Cibic - he has been awarded International Young Talent of the Year 2017 by Elle Decor - and realized at the FiammettaV facilities in Carrara, Italy. This is a unique piece in Paonazzo marble realized in June 2018 and signed by the designer. In case of order we specify that this is a made to order product, therefore veins and marble shades will be different compared to the picture, each piece is unique since marble is a natural stone and each piece will differ from the others. Do not put lemon, vinegar or oil on the surface, use only water for cleaning and in case of absolute necessity, use a cloth with neutral soap such as Marseilles.

View Profile
The history of the Vanelli family’s marble began in 1818 when the Duchess Maria Beatrice d’Este granted the Vanelli family the right to excavate Carrara’s white marble. Since the nineteenth century, Vanelli quarries provided marble for building public works in the most important European capitals. In 1960, Aldo Vanelli acquired the family quarry called Zona 67. Today, with the advent of robotics, it is possible to realise complex art works and special projects. Fiammetta Vanelli is the successor of this extraordinary heritage, a woman entrepreneur who wanted to model the solid soul of a stone into soft and cozy shapes with a feminine sensitivity. Raw materials like Portoro, Bardiglio, Paonazzo, Statuario marble are extracted directly from the family quarries. Under the brand FiammettaV, her objects combine the thousand-year old Italian artisan tradition with the most advanced technologies and each creation is a unique piece. You can find FiammettaV creations in the most prestigious stores, among them: Flair, Luisa Via Roma, Rossana Orlandi – Italy; Conran Shop, Fortnum & Mason, Harrods, Heal's, Selfridges – London; Bergdorf Goodman - New York.
