Yes, everyone, this is a "copy" of Monti's Veiled Lady. You guys are forgetting that Monti's sculptures are in the public domain due to age and how long he has been dead. Anyone, anywhere, can reproduce this sculpture in any way, shape or form they choose... even cheese! (Personally, a cheese Veiled Lady might be comical! :D (Big Grin))

That said, Congratulations AllenNecchi, this is a marvelous reproduction of a classic marble sculpture, in oak! I am in awe at how well you made the wood look like fabric. Bravo!!

But this is in wood!. Monti's piece is in the public domain so it may be reproduced anyway you like, even in cheese if that's your fancy. (Personally, a cheese Veiled Lady might be comical! :D)

pft, to be fair, I also think this wonderful piece of artwork doesn't really need a mature filter. It prevents some of us from viewing it.

when i see mature filter i expect it to have some kind of nudity or pornography atleast and then i get this pretty statue of a veiled lady with absolutely no nudity or anything.

... You expect nudity or pornography?

Says a lot when that is the first thought, instead of it possibly having themes of gore/violence or an image that might be thought of as 'unsuitable' for a younger viewers.

Nice was to be an ass.
Lots of people say things like that, funny how they all say 'I doubt' until it happens. Either way, clicking a button to view a 'mature' image seems to annoy you far more than it should.

well you are rigth. I am an asshole. That is a fucking stupid child and god I hate children. I dont even get why a child that stupid would have an internet connection. I refuse to feel sorry for that child and I refuse to regret I said "I doubt".And it does annoy me,just like movies that have age limits.

This is an almost direct copy of a marble statue by Monti lynseylew.deviantart.com/art/V… - inspiration is fine but a reference or comment acknowledging this would be good.

The statue that this is a direct copy of would be this veiled lady by Monti! songbirdsouls.tumblr.com/post/…

There's really no denying that this oak piece is a reproduction.

Lots of sculptors made veiled lady busts and statues. You don't give credit to a genre.

Ok but the thing is this DD piece is actually a straight up reproduction of a Monti piece????
songbirdsouls.tumblr.com/post/…

That's what lynseylew was trying to point out. It's not inspired by a genre, it is straight up copied and reproduced.

IvoryLatte Featured By Owner Jun 11, 2014
It doesn't look very similar besides the veil itself. The pose and the lady are different. I would say the Monti piece is a reference, not a direct reproduction. You're being a little dramatic about this.

:icon3030e:
3030e Featured By Owner Jun 11, 2014  Professional Digital Artist

I'm pretty sure you're looking at A Veiled Vestal Virgin instead of Raffaelle Monti's The Bride, because it's extremely apparent that this carving was copied from Monti's The Bride.

I did a redline of both sculpts, to show how they have extremely similar folds. They're not exact because this piece was carved freehand, but it is indeed a reproduction of The Bride.

If you can't see the astounding similarity in that, I would be shocked.

:iconlapurr:
LaPurr Featured By Owner Jun 11, 2014
Yes, IMO it was inspired by a genre, as were Monti's veiled ladies.

If anything, he may owe a note about Monti but certainly not one mention of the photograph of the piece uploaded to dA.

:icon3030e:
3030e Featured By Owner Jun 11, 2014  Professional Digital Artist

Yeah, I think credit to the original sculpt belonging to Monti's The Bride should be stuck somewhere in the artists comments, but not credit to someone's photograph of the work.
I was actually pretty surprised there was no footnote about it, cause there's really no deviation from the original form of Monti's piece.

((Also, I think lynseylew used their photograph of the piece to show the similarity between this and what they photographed, but they gave A Veiled Vestal Virgin as the attributed work instead of The Bride which this is based on.))

Agreed. It's pretty standard and normal to do studies from existing master works (of which The Veiled Lady no doubt is one), but it's customary to make some sort of note of the originator.

And PS, Monti did several Veiled Lady sculptures. I personally think it's a closer copy of this one, The Veiled Ladywww.marble-sculpture.com/produ…. It IS a genre (just like, say, statues of Mercury), but if someone made a sculpture that looked almost identical to the one above Grand Central Station, you would still be able to recognize it as a study.

Note: none of this makes the piece above any less beautiful or impressive. :)

Yeah, the craftsmanship of being able to recreate a piece as a study in oak is incredible here! I completely agree on that point, I'm not discrediting the work or the effort put into creating the work. I just think it would be good to state that it is based off of a master work, and that it isn't entirely original in it's origin.
