Pietrina Checcacci Agate Tray with Cast Bronze Hand
Agate Tray with Cast Bronze Hand by Italian-Brazilian artist Pietrina Checcacci. The hand carved stone bowl object features a patinated bronze hand attached to the side of the tray as if it is gripping it. The tray features a flat concave opening that allows it to serve as a vide poche, catchall, or ashtray. This quirky furniture element would be the perfect way to accent a desk or shelf displaying objects.
Checcacci is an Italian-born artist who works out of Rio de Janeiro. Her work mainly focuses on the human figure and body parts and she uses paintings or cast bronze sculptures as her medium. Since the start of her artistic career in the 1960s she has had ninety solo exhibitions and fifty collective exhibitions worldwide.
