The head statues displayed in this category were totally made by hand by our artisans following the sophisticated polychrome process. They sculptures were first carved in our wood workshops and then they were plastered, painted and for some of them gilded in our polychrome workshops. The specificity of the polychrome process is that it gives a smooth and classy finishing to the piece. The sober black color of the heads, their uncluttered style and their soothing attitude make them the perfect decorative items that can suit any bedroom or office. These heads also exist in other materials; please have a look at our wood and stone categories.
