French Gothic Mantel living-room

French Gothic Mantel

An exceptional example of sculptural excellence, it is Tartaruga’s homage to french gothic detailing. Inspired by studies of French châteaux such as Chaumont and Le Lude. Note the deeply carved gothic foliage motif adorning the frieze and pilaster capitals. The central dragon (salamander) motif, which was the alchemical symbol of fire chosen by François I as his official symbol, is fitting for this grand piece. The adjustable overmantel with its gothic tracery is the perfect complement to give this large-scale piece its ultimate grandeur.
