Wooden silver and gold obelisks
Originally created as an instrument of urban furniture, in time it has asserted itself as an elegant furnishing object.
In today's Florence, the most famous examples of these artefacts can be admired in Piazza Santa Maria Novella where the Grand Duke Ferdinando dei Medici erected two marble obelisks in 1606, replacing the wooden ones previously erected by Cosimo I in 1563.
Our marble painted obelisks in the colours blue, green and red are inspired by this.
The gilding of this object is performed with the technique of "gouache" gilding. The gold or silver leaf is applied with a warm tempera. The surface is then burnished and glazed, and then protected by a transparent varnish.
