"Urban fountains are canorous voices of Rome"

Ottorino Respighi, Italian composer

 

Office Decor Art Object "Neptune" is a voice of the majestic Trevi. Artisans of the Classic Jewelry House "Lobortas" carved out of mammoth ivory the central figure of the famous fountain, which is one of the precious gems of the "eternal city"! This mammoth tusk lied in permafrost for tens of thousands of years and survived. It is matte and opaque. Even where the hand of the artisan has created a sublime study of details, mammoth ivory does not transmit light. At the same time, mammoth ivory always retains a prominent microstructure of its picture.

No wonder that was him, whom the jewelers chose for the image of the God of The Ocean, the mighty Neptune. As a huge Lord of Seas on a small Piazza di Spagna in Rome and its copy, reduced in many times, stately flows on his own chariot-shaped bowl. Hard look from under the frowning eyebrows, a regal gesture of hand... The work of the great Giovanni Bernini served as a model for the office art object. Artisans reproduced the masterpiece with horrifying accuracy, allowing themselves to bring it to perfection, by having recreated the Trident, the faded regalia of the Ocean God only.

The base of the composition is a foggy agate, garnished with topazes.

Office Decor Art Object "Neptune" is the best voice of Rome.
