Unique stone-cutting composition "Atlantis". Materials: Brazilian agate, jasper, garnets.Author: Sergey Alexandrovich Falkin.


The work of reflection on the theme of the mythical island-state of Atlantis was embodied in this sculpture.How were the inhabitants swallowed up by the sea able to adapt to life? They became similar to fish with gills, fins and a tail, but retained the features of a human face.The heterogeneous color of agate, with its tints and shades, was well suited for the execution of the figure. A fragment of a broken column completes the image and refers to an ancient civilization.


Stone-cut sculpture "Atlantis" was exhibited at the Louvre (Paris) in 2007.
