This is a beautiful circa 1900 marble fresco. It is very large and ornate measuring 5'6" in length by 3'4 1/2" and is in excellent condition. The entire piece is heavily carved depicting a full figured Adam & Eve with a stylized shield in the center. Engraved in the shield in Latin are the words " Ave Maria Gratia Plena Dominus Tecum", which translates to " Hail Mary Full Of Grace The Lord Is With Thee." Also depicted are two winged cherubs and two doves of peace. On the far end of each side are ornate raised pillars with ornate leaf garlands throughout the design. The borders on the top and bottom are also heavily embellished. This piece originated in Europe and was procured from a Beverly Hills, California collectors estate. The fresco has a very striking appearance and can be built into a wall in your home or garden. This is a one-of-a-kind piece and is destined to be a dramatic and exceptional addition to any environment.
