Golden Glass Sculpture ‘Mount Vesuvius’ by Jan Falta
Mount Vesuvius is a golden glass sculpture of sheer greatness. The mount of the piece with a clear green center, covered with golden ash and pyroclastic flows. Stemming from the center of the mount an amazing plume of gold. The anger and menace of the core displayed for all to see. Captured a moment in time when nature reminds us, that we are the guests upon this sacred plant.
Jan has worked his mastery yet again to define the true turmoil within the plume of an eruption. Mount Vesuvius, a golden glass sculpture that demands ones attention.
NB These pieces come directly from the studio in Czech Republic. Please allow at least 5-7 working days for delivery.
