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.
