Portrait of Leonardo DaVinci

Portrait of Leonardo DaVinci

Item No. H-080

The Portrait of Leonardo DaVinci was created to honor a Master of the Arts. The portraiture is the result of a combination of his original self-portrait drawings; some show him bald and beardless, while others show him with a beard and long hair.

The head is sculptured on a Smoky Quartz crystal, utilizing the white root for the beard. The torso (separate photo) is carved in Rock Crystal Quartz with the spine engraved as intaglio, offering an illusion “X-ray” of the chest.

Dimensions: Total Height: 3.5”

Weight: Head: Smoky Quartz 328.0 carats, Bust: Rock Crystal Quartz 700.0 carats
