The beauty of imperfection: fragmented classical sculptures by Massimiliano Pelletti

Massimiliano Pelletti is an Italian Pietrasanta-based sculptor who specializing in making reinterpretations of classical sculptures. One of the most beautiful and interesting of his series is the one that recreates classical busts using crystalline materials, such as blocks of naturally fragmented Mexican onyx.

In antiquity, classicism represented the divine perfection and also man’s ambition to rise to that perfection. In my work, I simply made this ambition more earthly, closer to us, to the contemporary man, with all its defects and its fragilities. (…) I found that my work appeals to collectors of any age, from the oldest and to the youngest generations. The beauty, the balance, the poetry are things that belong to everyone or almost everyone. If you can balance them in the right way, you can reach anyone.
