Mauro Mori’s works are always modelled by hand, never using machines. The masterpiece “Both” was hand carved from a single block of Paonazzo marble. A circular shape was cut out in the marble, guiding the viewer’s eye through the sculpture in such a way that the background becomes an integral part of the art piece.
