Dante fires up yet another celebrity hand
He’s shaken the hands of every celebrity you can think of from Quentin Tarantino, Robert De Niro and Angelica Houston to Kirk Douglas, Jennifer Jason Leigh and Samuel L. Jackson – the list goes on.
But unlike the average fan, Dante Mortet has gone on to make bronze sculptures of those very hands, becoming one of the Hollywood elite’s favourite artists in the process.
This Roman craftsman is a sixth generation Italian sculptor whose family began making chalices for the Pope 120 years ago.
So from the old gods of Christianity to the new saints of celebrity, when it comes to making something precious out of molten metal, this Dante’s Inferno is the real deal.
