A classic bust sculpture of one of the most famous Italians of the 14th century, this antique inspired bust depicts, Dante Alighieri (1265 - 1321).
Exquisitely hand sculpted from antique ivory, this famous author is a standard accessory found in places of wisdom and culture, including libraries and bookstores over the ages.
Renowned for his monumental masterpiece, 'La Davina Commedia', Dante was an Italian poet, philosopher and literary theorist who played a pivotal role in establishing Italy's national language, writing in native Tuscan dialect instead of noble Latin.
