A remarkable piece, not least because of her diaphanous veil and enigmatic, pensive expression.
Also known as The Veiled Lady, she is a reproduction of an original by the Italian Raphaele Monti, who came to live and work in England 1850. He established his name with this statue, which was purchased by the Duke of Devonshire, and she is now on permanent display along with some of the world�s finest Grand Tour sculpture, in the Chatsworth House marble sculpture collection in Derbyshire.

This collection is made in the UK in cast Carrara marble. The beautiful white marble of Carrara in Tuscany was used for the Pantheon in ancient Rome and was a favourite of Michelangelo.
The sculptures are created using a process of dry casting, so that each sculpture contains over 90% marble. They glisten!
The high quality is such that there will be no discoloration - other than natural patination and ageing - especially if the pieces are placed outdoors.
