Egregia - Giannelli

These charming figurines were created by A. Giannelli in Volterra, city in the heart of Italy's alabaster district. His work is in the tradition of the great Italian Master. The figurines are composed of alabaster dust mixed a durable binding compound. Each piece is expertly crafted with painstaking: his experience is impressive. Born in Volterra, Italy, he was a keen student of sculpture form the age of ten. He graduated from the Royal School of Art in 1924 and achieved the accolade of "Master" at the Nardoni Workshops. In 1953, he was appointed president of the Alabaster Craftsmen Guild, a position he held until 1961. Among his most famous pieces, three works are prominent. He completed a bust for Dwight D Eisenhower, for which he received the American President's personal thanks. Mirko Basaldella, the famous sculptor, commissioned him to create a three metre high totem for the Boston University. He also produced a bust of the President of Kenya which was commissioned by Professor Fioravanti of Rome. For his professional achievements, he was awarded the title of "Cavaliere" in 1970 the Italian equivalent of a Knighthood. We trust you will gain great pleasure from these beautiful figurines. Notice: all sculptures lacking the A. Giannelli signature are crude imitations. The slight differences that may be noticed in these products do not reduce their value but rather testify their artisan workmanship.


The Original:

The Pietà is a work of Renaissance sculpture by Michelangelo Buonarroti, housed in St. Peter's Basilica, Vatican City. It is the first of a number of works of the same theme by the artist. The statue was commissioned for the French Cardinal Jean de Bilhères, who was a representative in Rome.
