Venizia is a a "gondola" form - which is surprisingly uncommon in Murano glass. Like many of Afro's glass art works, this one has a front and back with a definite "axis" through the piece. This is just part of the complex composition that includes multiple incalmos, cane, murrini, reticello, avventurine and delicate cold working - all in the same beautiful art glass sculpture. Hand blown at Antichi Angeli on Murano Venice, Italy using Murano Glass.
