Sculpture of a Bull in Murano glass, made using the Massello and Calcedonio techniques.
Capturing an animal on glass, with its expressions and details, is quite complicated. Maestro Tagliapietra's great skills emerge clearly from this perfectly executed sculpture of a bull.
Its peculiar colors are due to the calcedonio technique. The coloring effect is obtained by adding to the molten glass a mixture based on different metal oxides. The results are incredible.
