Nature in Italian Art. Wild, domesticated, real and fictitious animals and cultivated and naturalistic flora share space on this chromatically striking cube. This cube surveys imagery of nature in Italian art for over 2500 years, including pieces from the Magna Grecia, Roman, Renaissance and Liberty periods and styles in materials ranging from frescoes and oils to mosaics and inlaid semi-precious stones and sculptures and bas reliefs in marble. All of the images are from works of art currently on display in the network of Italian state museums. A great gift for nature lovers of all ages. Includes full color illustrated storycard describing each image in English and Italian.
