Isamu Noguchi, Bivalve, 1969. Italian black marble and red Alicante marble sculpture.


Sculpture, Stone
I started combining various marbles and colors. No, I merely re-collected. Or more truly, I became interested in post-tensioning, the drilling and binding of various stones in tension. But then why not all the same color? We are back with Tuscan churches and layers of colored marble.
