The Marble Masterpiece was created by the dexterous hands of the late Frank Rusconi and represents 28 years of work by this master craftsman. Consisting of 20,948 pieces of Australian marble, each and every piece lovingly hand cut and polished, this is a truly magnificent work of art and must be seen to be believed.
Frank Rusconi was born in Australia and started work on the masterpiece in 1910, finishing many, many hours later in 1938. The Marble Masterpiece is a magnificent example of meticulous accuracy. No plans of any kind were used during its construction. Each section was finished then put away for assembly on completion of the whole work.
