Italian contemporary artist Massimiliano Pelletti uses white onyx to carve stunning busts inspired by classical sculpture, but with one awesome difference. Pelletti leaves raw crystalline edges of the stone intact, which contrast beautifully with the perfectly smooth texture of the carefully carved human forms.
