The Hand Signals That Coordinate Precision Marble Excavation

Italian artist and filmmaker Yuri Ancarani captures the otherworldly landscape of a marble quarry in the Apuan Alps, Northwest Italy, as Il Capo (The Chief) guides his men through the extraction process.

All that power in his hands, moving mountains like giants, but mere mortal he remains.

SO inspiring & unbelievable that all this nature’s creation takes months of journey on a boat just to end up decorating people’s palaces!
