Custom natural marble statue | Life-size stone sculpture
Writhing and ecstatic in spiritual martyrdom, this marble statue of the famous Saint Sebastian is a master class in the artistic representation of human anatomy. The twisted limbs of Sebastian, tied to a tree as punishment for his religious beliefs in ancient Rome, showcase the geometry and musculature that only the masters of marble sculpture can capture.
His posture is both exhausted and determined: even through his suffering he continues to fight. His robe is draped over the trunk of the tree, folding and swaying almost as if it is not made of marble stone at all, but real fabric. The story of St. Sebastian is ingrained in the mythological background of sainthood and history: here his story is captured forever in flawlessly carved stone.
