PRODUCT DETAILS
Description
Handsome cards which reproduce bravura details from an inlaid tabletop created by Giovanni Leoni in Genoa in 1685, now in the collection of the Rijksmuseum. The table is decorated using ‘scagliola’, a fine plaster made using ground marble and used in 17th century Italy to imitate pietra dura and which allowed for finer detail. The smart designs include a peacock and parrots: the exotic birds being popular Christian symbols in Renaissance art. The peacock was believed to represent immortality, seen often in images of the Nativity from the period; and parrots were considered a reference to the purity of the Virgin Mary.

Made exclusively for Museum Selection.
