Material: Bianco Carrara Marble⠀Natural stone has long been used in sacred places in fact it dates as far back as 5000 BCE. The immersion into a ritual bath goes back to Leviticus which scholars put at 322 BCE. Imbuing so much history and importance into a material might seem to be asking too much but if any material is strong enough to carry such importance, beauty and meaning it would be marble.⠀And how lucky are we that we live in a time that we can take a bit of that history and beauty into our homes?⠀
