Magnificent antique obelisks in polychrome marble with various marble inlays. Venice, private collection. XIX century.


The peculiarity of the obelisks is not only in significant sizes, but also in Latin expressions inscribed on the sidewalls. The meaning of the words is: "On the one hand - pleasure, on the other - physical and mental health, medicines will prolong life (give), but harmful will add color to life." the marble that has been used, in particular, is the yellow royal marble, the black portoro marble and the nembro marble. Obelisks are in excellent condition, this is a real ode to the skill of carvers, such objects are difficult to find on the antique market.
