Caption: MODEL RELEASED. Marble quarry. Worker chiseling a block of marble at a quarry. It is being cut by hand before being cut by machine. This is the Fantiscritti quarry, Carrara, Italy. Marble has been quarried in the hills above Carrara for more than 2000 years. Marble is a metamorphic rock, formed when limestone is altered by processes within the Earth, for example extreme pressure or temperature. This fine white marble is used for building and sculpture. Michelangelo used marble from Carrara for his sculptures.
