Bizarre Murano Glass Encased Fetus

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

Truly strange objet de vertu made of Murano glass made by Elio Raffaelli. The fetus is truly iridescent deep blue in person-- but photographed very dark. The sculpture is extremely heavy (110lbs) and intriguing from all angles. It is sold with the fluted wooden pedestal shown in images.
