Why is the veil popular among Italian sculptors?
One of the reasons these figures love the subject is because the sculptures under these veils allow them to show off their artistry. It takes a high level of skill to achieve the illusion that a solid material such as natural marble is actually a flowing piece of fabric stuck to the body. For this reason, since ancient times, sculptors have dressed their figures in drapery to highlight their sculptural talents. Greek Hellenism and Italian Renaissance sculpture are the most famous examples of this phenomenon and undoubtedly inspired Strazza and his sculptor contemporaries.
