This Sculpture is an Investment as well as Stunning!
EMBRACE~~ An Original Rare Blue Argentina Onyx Solid Sculpture Signed (hand-engraved) Anthony Quinn. Completed in 1984.
With the Base this weighs over 85 lbs. It has a whole drilled in the base and sculpture bottom with a metal pole that it sits into. This also allows you to turn the Sculpture on the base to experience all sides when viewing this Masterpiece.
This Modernist Sculpture is Truly Breathtaking. This took almost 2 full years to complete. The Argentina Onyx was mined after being found by Mr. Quinn in 1972. The Onyx itself is no longer available as there is none left in Argentina as well around the world. It has veins of browns,golds and light and deeper shades of a blue/green that looks like the most beautiful body of water on the planet.
A magnificent sculpture in Onice Azzurro Argentina ( rare blue onyx) executed by Anthony Quinn, 19” bearing the artist’s hand-engraved signature. Sculpture measures approximately 19” high plus the base 3” High x 10 1/2” square in a Black Marble.
This Sculpture is one of the most beautiful ever executed by Mr. Quinn in one of the most magnificent stones ever created by God and Nature
My husband and I were honored to have been friends with Mr. Quinn and his Beautiful Family and we acquired this from him in 1998. FYI / In 2000 we were approached by a World renowned Jewelry Store “ Tiffany and Co.” and Famous Jeweler,Artist to discuss purchasing the Sculpture to use the Onyx in a Rare Collection. We obviously declined the high 6 figure/low 7 figure offer as the Piece meant to much to us.
We don’t want to let this piece go but after a fortune in medical bills for our daughter at 19 who lost a year long battle with Cancer, we are just trying to pick up the pieces and help our family mourn and heal Our greatest loss....
Mr. Anthony Quinn was a Renaissance Man,Actor,Sculpture,Painter,Writer etc and one of the highest regarded artists of the 20th Century as well as an Academy Award winner. He lived an extraordinary life and was known Internationally.
The Retail Price was over $130,000.00 in 1998 when my husband and I acquired this directly from our longtime family friend The Late Anthony Quinn.
