'A Declaration' - An Unusual Specimen Marble Figural Group By Prof. Aristide Petrilli, On A Revolving Pedestal.

This remarkable neo-classical style figural group depicts a courting couple in conversation, seated on a bench.

Petrilli skilfully combines rare specimen marbles: red onyx, brèche violette marble, yellow sienna marble, lapis lazuli and malachite, with moulded glass and bronze, to create a harmonious and sophisticated composition - an intimate moment frozen in time; reminiscent of the neo-classical Greco-Roman subjects of artists such as Lawrence Alma-Tadema and John William Godward.

The reverse of the group is centred by an exquisite caméo roundel depicting Apollo and his chariot and the whole is raised on a revolving verde antico marble pedestal.
