The Opera Fireplace by Chilean artist, Sebastian ErrazurizJuxtapoz // Sunday, 03 Jul 2011
Chilean artist, Sebastian Errazuriz, created this 600-pounds of marble fireplace, ready to be installed in your house today complete with opera stage, curtains, stage, floorboards and stairs. Fully functional, you can even light the opera singer character on fire.
We read that the "marble's thickness and the level of detail requires several months to carve, a process completed by the artist and two marble craftsmen in Brooklyn." But we think most importantly, for the fun of it, the "fireplace comes equipped with several wooden figures and a scaffolding structure, constructed from maple logs and carved by hand as well."
