Italian Sculptor Worked On A Marble Masterpiece For Seven Years And The Result Is Breathtaking

The Cappella Sansevero, a beautiful chapel in the historic center of Naples, is one of the most impressive spaces on Earth. Everywhere you look, you're confronted by sculptures of astonishing beauty, a bevy of masterpieces from 18th century Italian artists that have left visitors scratching their heads in wonder for hundreds of years: how can such intricate works possibly have been carved from single pieces of marble?


Il Disinganno (Disillusion or Release from Deception), the masterpiece of Genoese artist Francesco Queirolo, is one piece in particular that leaves patrons puzzled. It portrays a man breaking free from a fine, elaborately carved net, helpfully assisted by the presence of a winged angel. According to the museum’s website, the sculpture is steeped in symbolism.


Other notable masterpieces among the 28-piece collection include The Veiled Truth (Pudicizia, also called Modesty or Chastity) which was completed by Antonio Corradini in 1750 as a tomb monument. And the 1753 Christ Veiled under a Shroud (also called Veiled Christ), by Giuseppe Sanmartino, which shows the influence of the veiled Modesty.
