Purple Rain

Purple Rain.  A portrait of singer Prince, “His Royal Badness“, a unique figure in American pop music who died far too soon.  It’s made out of two beautiful components: marble and smalti. The face is made out of several types of marble cut into small pieces. The hair is done with coarse pieces of smalti mixed with finer pieces of colored goldsmalti tush bringing movement and depth to the work. Up close you’ll notice that the color of the hair isn’t exclusively black !
