Cuore Rosa

Persian Red Travertine
78 x 43 x 38 inches
Private Collection
Palm Beach, FL

Commissioned by newlywed private collectors, Cuore Rosa is a lasting tribute to love. Carved from fiery Persian red travertine, this contemporary sculpture has the permanence of stone and the motion of interconnectedness; its shape gestures both to the icon of the heart and to an infinite cycle. Poised at the center of a fountain, Richard notes that Cuore Rosa merges, “the passion of the red stone and a beating heart with the buoyancy of water for an uplifting, almost bubbly feeling.”
