Murano glass elephant sculpture with submerged gold leaf and murrine decorations. This artwork is perfect to surprise anybody with a special gift idea.
This glass elephant is an ideal design glass sculpture that can complete any home space decoration with elegance, giving light and even more value to your living room coffee table.
Two traditions within a single sculpture: this piece is a wonderful specimen of Murano glass elephant, featuring gold leaf and murrine.
Ancient glass art, expressed in the composition of millefiori murrine within the pachyderm's legs, meets the traditional image of the animal with its trunk raised, which is said to bring good fortune to the household that adopts it.
The elephant is the largest and strongest land animal on earth; its role as a good-luck charm originates from Asia, where it is considered a divine animal of good omen.
Regardless of the place where it is displayed, it will always distinguish itself thanks to its elegant and particular design, achieved through the hardworking process of glass blowing.
Every day Murano artisans realize Murano glass objects. The Master sets up the work and coordinates his “serventi“ which help him in the preparation of the piece using incandescent furnaces: first they draw their desired object on some papers hanging close to the kilns then, once the glass is at the right temperature, the glassmakers shape quickly the material to obtain their glass artwork.
Whether you already visited Venice or not, having this piece of art in your house will allow you to live the “Venetian Dream“. By bringing into your house this authentic sculpture, which is entirely made in the heart of Venice, you can decor your house with an Italian lifestyle point of view, combining beauty and simplicity.
This product, like all products on YourMurano is handmade blown by some of the most Famous Murano island glassmakers and it represents the emblem of this beautiful Island.
