A Monumental Medieval Marble Mortar

An unusually large and rare monumental scale Italian white marble Medieval mortar c.1200-1400 AD. This object is eternally contemporary. A banal everyday piece so essential to life, yet its purity reveals a sense of the origins of culture and humanity, taking us back to where we all come from. It shares both a monastic and contemplative feeling amplified by its repaired fissures and cracks, old repairs spanning centuries making this object a truly treasured piece.
