The Orlandi Boy with Kitten & Book Garden Statue embodies the blissful contentment of childhood summer days with nothing to do but read and snuggle kittens. From his loafers to his toussled hair, this child is portrayed in loving detail and overcast with a touch of green moss for an aged look.
Thanks to Fiber Stone technology, this piece offers the look of authentic weathered stone without the weight or deterioration. Fiber Stone is a mixture of sand and stones that is cast onto the surface of a fiberglass frame to create the illusion of aged stone. The result is a piece that's lightweight and less fragile than concrete.
Born in 1911 when Egisto Orlandi traveled from Lucca, Italy to Chicago, Illinois, Orlandi Statuary quickly set the standard for excellence in their industry. Egisto took great pride in his craft and reputation and which is why artists, interior designers, and museums relied upon the careful details and impeccable quality he demanded. Over the years, they've evolved into a company supplying more than statuary. Orlandi's many collections today include fiber stone for the garden, religious statuary, fountains, columns, and pedestals. Their factory and showroom are still proudly located in Chicago where, after 100 years, they remain an industry icon.Shop All Orlandi Statuary
