24 Saturday, August 17, 2013 DESIGNS BY MARBLE CRAFTERS PRESENTS REMARKABLE ROCK OF AGES With rigidity comparable to diamonds and colors that scrupulously depict the exquisiteness of natural glamour, marble exudes attributes of grandeur and style. Detailed enough to become Michelangelo's choice for sculpting, marble glorifies everything it encompasses, from a mantel to the statue of David. Marble stands headstrong as the crowning gem for palaces, castles, citadels and even the modern-day skyscrapers. With its unique surface translucency, the touch of marble is often compared to that of the human skin. Thus a marble artifact contains the visual depth that is beyond its naturally radiant earthly colors and evokes realism and presence in traditional as well as contemporary artwork that beautifies the world around us. For centuries, marble has been used as a means to reflect stature and accomplishment. When polished to a virtually glasslike surface, it flaunts artistry and magnificence. It is the medium desired by master craftsmen for the promise of what it holds. As in the case of the mighty Taj Mahal, one of the Seven Wonders of the World, marble magnifies an ultimate symbol of commitment, majesty, and of course, beauty. The skill of master craftsmen at Designs by Marble Crafters comes from a crafting trait passed from one generation to the next. The dedication in craftsmanship, combined with the beautiful marble stone in an assortment of colors, creates the products that Designs by Marble Crafters has to offer.
