This item has been created with Bruna De Concilio, who made the doll, for “La Galleria dell’Artigianato” project, promoted by Regione Toscana.
The leather cushion has been made drawing inspiration from the Cappelle Medicee, particularly from the Ferdinando de’ Medici sarcophagus, on which there is an alabaster and coloured marble cushion.
