Massimiliano Pelletti’s Crystalline Busts Beautifully Combine Art and Nature

Italian artist Massimiliano Pelletti is an amazingly talented sculptor, but what makes some of her works truly breathtaking are the portions of stone that she leaves untouched. Using white onyx as her medium, she deftly creates stunning busts that are on par with some of the greatest of any era. However, where most sculptors would not stop until the entire piece is completed to traditional standards, Pelletti leaves the crystalline edges of the onyx, adding a natural and almost surreal new take to a classic art form.
