"Maternity" is an excellent example of the skilled carving done at the Hallowell Granite Works. One of the best known sculptors was Archille Falconi. He was an expert statuary cutter and also displayed a genuine artistic ability in modeling subjects in clay. In 1887 the Hallowell Register noted that Falconi had completed his model of the fruit piece he would carve to be placed over the entrance to the Metropolitan Art Building in New York City.Show Details
