This offering is sold.

Portoro marble is considered is a luxury marble, one of the most desired in the world. The exclusive marble is a rich black hue with golden streaks, quarried in the Gulf of La Spezia near the famous quarries of Carrara (Tuscany). Dating back thousands of years, many ancient cultures have adored it including the Romans. In our day Zuni Pueblo carver Gabriel Sice has opted for a Portoro marble to sculpt an upright Bear that's a powerful 2 1/2" tall, 2" wide and 1 1/2" deep. A yellow-hued inclusion in the marble resembles a continous heartline or breath path.
