Handcrafted Hanging Renaissance Fresco

100% of 100
On a journey to Umbria, our friend Lisa met members of the Lazzari family, who have developed a technique that re-creates great works of art on plaster in the style of Renaissance fresco painters. After mixing mortar according to a 15th century formula, the image is transferred while the mortar is still wet, so that the pigments become permanently incorporated in the stone. Using authentic materials, colors and finishes, the Lazzaris produce this beautiful detail from Michelangelo's Sistine Chapel mural on a 5'' by 6'' stone. Presented in a beautiful box, with hanging hook crafted from old iron, and a certificate of origin guaranteeing the workmanship and materials.

Lazzari Family

Decades of research and experimentation allow the Lazzari family of Italy to reproduce images from classic works of art onto stone in the pictography technique, similar to the style of traditional Renaissance frescoes. Images are transferred while the mortar is still wet so that the pigments become permanently incorporated, then finished by hand.
