The Lost Amphora
The piece is extremely rich of details most of them done with very little dentist tool (0.8mm) and it’s completely carved, even the internal part; I wanted to take the observer in a very deep trip . It required several months to complete with two years of sketch and research. Project started in the first part of 2018 and was completed in the first part of 2020. I didn’t use and pigments to alter the color of the wood. Finishing comes from old methods, most of them of the Cremona school of lutherie (‘700). In the shipping cost it’s included insurance and woodbox.
