A sauna stone.

Material: nephrite.

Length: 140 mm.

Sergey Falkin creates an unusual gem stone carved object of decorative art from a piece of nephrite. The sculptor finds an expressive anthropomorphic image, which either sings or breathes out steam, if you pour water on it in the bathhouse. This is the uniqueness of the author’s sauna stone: the sculptor creates an object that literally interacts with the space and with a person, and in this interaction the image reveals itself and acquires different meanings.

In addition to that, nephrite is considered an advantageous stone for sauna use, and it forms a soft steam. Thus, the author’s piece of arts and crafts acquires another very practical purpose.
