Why mining is good


Ok, now don’t get a shock. ¬†Here’s a bit of culture for you.

The Veiled Virgin is a Carrara marble statue carved in Rome by Italian sculptor Giovanni Strazza, depicting the bust of a veiled Blessed Virgin Mary

The very effective veiled effect is called “Wet drapery

It could not have been made it if the marble hadn’t been mined from the¬†¬†Michelangelo Marble Quarry in Carrara.

Here is a video ad for a truck, but it was recorded in the Michelangelo Marble Quarry, so you get to have a good look around it.
