Indian Lingam Stone of Ovoid Form with Metal Stand

About

This dark gray lignum stone was sourced as part of a group of three by Juan Montoya in India. He commissioned the steel stands based on a design by Marc du Plantier - one for each of the three stones he found. Historically, lignum stones are considered sacred in Indian culture and are often placed in small temple niches. This stone is considered particularly unusual, being much larger in size than many of its more traditional counterparts. Mr. Montoya’s uses of this piece have been purely decorative, adding intrigue and depth to any interior in which it is placed. Property from esteemed interior designer Juan Montoya. Juan Montoya is one of the most acclaimed and prolific interior designers in the world today. Juan Montoya was born and spent his early years in Colombia. After studying architecture in Bogotá, he moved to New York where he graduated from Parsons School of Design. Following two years of work and study in Paris and Milan, he returned to New York, where he founded the design business he has presided over since. His firm specializes in residential and contract interior design, with projects located throughout the United States and Internationally. A member of the Interior Design Hall of Fame, a recipient of an honorary Doctorate of Fine Arts from Parsons School of Design, A Doctorate from New York School of Interior Design, Star of Design Award, and the Legends Award from Pratt Institute. His contributions to the field of interior design are widely recognized. He is also included in AD100 since its inaugural list, AD Collector (France) top 100, AD 30 Deans of Design and a Grand Master on Elle Decor's A-list. Extremely heavy. There are natural inclusions to the stones as to be expected. Each with light surface wear and soiling. Minor losses and rubbing to the stands.
