New carving in olive wood of the handheld image of MARY, finished and signed by the artist

Every day more it is difficult to get Olive Wood, even more to find the needed size of the block -without wounds- to carve the sculpture MARIA.
In 2020, in spite of the restrictions and lockdown, Guido Dettoni della Grazia has been able to collect and select Olive Wood from Umbria, the land of Saint Francis.

With the chosen blocks, each of 6 x 2,4 x 2,4 in he has carved, finished and signed the handheld copies sized 5.5 in.

As it happens with every wood, the blocks are all different from each other, so that every sculpture is unique and unrepeatable.

The dove in flight approached Noah’s Ark. Its beak carried an olive branch. The land was near. The flood had ended and the peace began. The olive tree, since then, became its symbol.

Ogni giorno di più è difficile procurarsi legno di olivo e trovare la misura necessaria del blocco – senza ferite – per scolpire la scultura MARIA.

Nel 2020, nonostante le restrizioni e i lockdown, Guido Dettoni della Grazia ha potuto raccogliere e selezionare legno di olivo proveniente dall’Umbria, la terra di San Francesco.

Con i blocchi scelti, ciascuno di 15 x 6 x 6 cm, egli ha scolpito, rifinito e firmato le copie a misura delle mani nelle dimensioni di 14 cm.
Come succede con ogni legno, i blocchi sono tutti diversi l’uno dall’altro, cosicché ogni scultura è unica e irripetibile.

La colomba in volo si avvicinò all’arca di Noè. Il suo becco portava un ramoscello d’olivo. La terra era vicina. Il diluvio era terminato ed era iniziata la pace. L’olivo, da allora, ne è diventato il simbolo.

  1. Sono stato a trovarmi circa due giorni fa con mia figlia e mi chiedo se sia possibile acquistare una piccola scultura portatile di Mary/colomba da questo progetto di esposizione

    Potresti mandarmi un’email, per favore, se questi potessero essere disponibili?

    Grazie!
