Pietra Filosofale is an artwork by Raffaella Benetti composed of a bronze sculpture and a carved stone with a 24 carat gold leaf core. Pietra Filosofale portrays an artist who is contemplating his existence and identity. Inside the stone is pure gold that lends the artist light and spirituality, allowing him to finally be at peace with himself.
Pietra Filosofale is beautifully texturised and skillfully patinated, which gives it a rich hue. It is even more mesmerising when illuminated with a spotlight directed towards the gold leaf center.
Our bronze sculptures are cast using the lost wax method. Danseuse is a limited edition bronze sculpture, each piece is numbered and signed.
