Michelangelo had several models made of the St. Peter dome during the time he worked on it. Discovered in an attic and newly restored, these models are now a main attraction at the Vatican Museum. Architects over the centuries have made models to check details in 3D and help clients understand dimensional perspectives. Crafted of cherry and birch wood finished in subtle shades of light and dark honey, this model features sinuous curves and arches that add a beautiful touch to desk or shelf.
Inspired by the Age of Sail, exploration, science, and cartography, and with a commitment to quality and intrigue, Authentic Models offers a collection with the character of authenticity. Made by artisans using time-honored skills, these pieces enrich a room, and the people in it, with a profound spirit of history and nostalgia.
