Concealing art under the cloak of utility — Gianluca Pacchioni’s sculptural panels represent, the Milanese master sculptor’s latest experimental exploration in molten metal. Realized through an innovative combination of solid casting and liquid techniques, the Fossil panels have been embossed with a myriad of tropical flora and fauna. Giving the impression of naturally occurring fossilization, in these spectacular art panels temporal living organisms are set into delicate permanency.
