Italian artist Massimiliano Pelletti is an amazingly talented sculptor, but what makes some of her works truly breathtaking are the portions of stone that she leaves untouched. Using white onyx as her medium, she deftly creates stunning busts that are on par with some of the greatest of any era. However, where most sculptors would not stop until the entire piece is completed to traditional standards, Pelletti leaves the crystalline edges of the onyx, adding a natural and almost surreal new take to a classic art form.

“To a man whose mind is free there is something even more intolerable in the sufferings of animals than in the sufferings of man. For with the latter it is at least admitted that suffering is evil and that the man who causes it is a criminal. But thousands of animals are uselessly butchered every day without a shadow of remorse. If any man were to refer to it, he would be thought ridiculous. And that is the unpardonable crime.”
