Monumental fountains, memorials, votive sculptures: mankind has always dressed in gold the statues with which it pays homage to its heroes and its past and the symbols of the secular and religious values in which it believes. Browse the Gallery to see the best creations made with Manetti gold leaf.
The Manetti gold leaf is the perfect tool to enhance the plasticity of statues, the rich composition of fountains, the splendour of the decorations that make monuments and places of worship unique. The expertise of the master decorators and the quality of the gold leaf are the indispensable prerequisites for the success of restoration work or for the construction of new statues and monuments, often destined to stay outdoors for centuries.
The Manetti gold leaf has been used for the splendid gilding that make some of the most famous memorials shine (among which we highlight the Albert Memorial of the Kensington Gardens, the Victoria Memorial in Buckingham Palace, the First Division Memorial in Washington) splendid fountains (such as the Children Fountain of the Suan Saranron Park in Bankok, the Impala Fountain in Johannesburg and the Fontain de Fleuve in Place de la Concorde in Paris), and statues of high symbolic value such as the statue dedicated to Freedom that surmounts the dome of the Capitol building in Austin (Texas), the statue dedicated to the Harmony of the Opera Garnier in Paris and the statue dedicated to Justice on the Ontario County Courthouse, the imposing Golden Buddha of the Beopjusa in South Korea, the Golden Shiva in Trincomalee (Sri Lanka), the Golden Lion in Macao and the Prometheus of the Rockefeller Centre in New York.
