Fabio Viale’s Tattooed Sculptures Sculptor Fabio Viale , whose works from earlier this decade coaxed mundane objects such as tires and grocery sacks from Carrara marble, has more recently turned his attention to embellishing his works with colorful “body modifications.” Viale’s project over the past five years involves re-creating actual-size replicas of famous works known from antiquity, most Roman copies of Greek original works, such as the Venus de Milo and the Aphrodite Knidos, and decorating them with colorful “tattoos.” The tattoos take their inspiration from traditional designs from Japan as well as variations upon designs from the international criminal underworld.
