Sculptor Carves Ornate Architecture Interiors into Small Blocks of Marble and Stone


Matthew Simmonds is a Copenhagen-based artist who carves miniature basilicas, rotundas, pillars, and passages from marble and stone. We first discovered his stunning craftsmanship in 2014 and took note of his masterful art—a combination of the skills he acquired as a professional carver and his continuing interest in sacred stone buildings that dates back to childhood. With care and precision, he uses the conventional commandments of architecture to explore the thematic implications of different sculptural forms.
