Italian Sculptor Created Masterpiece From A Single Slab Of Marble In Just 7 Years
Francesco Queirolo was the only artist who was brave enough to take on the difficult task.
There is little doubt that artists who worked with marble during the 18th century were true geniuses. However, one Italian sculptor stands out among the rest. When the Prince of Sansavero ordered the creation of a challenging piece from a single slab of marble, most artists declined due to its complexity. However, one man took on the challenge and completed the masterpiece in just seven years.
Francesco Queirolo was a sculptor from Genoa who was active in Rome and Naples during the Rococo period. The Italian artist created several amazing works. However, he is best known for the masterpiece he made for Raimondo di Sangro, Prince of Sansevero. The prince asked Queirolo to work on a monument to Raimondo's father. The artist obliged and created the famed Il Disinganno of Cappella Sansevero.
Queirolo worked on the masterpiece for seven years.

MMA Fighter Claims Bruce Lee’s Martial Arts “Doesn’t Show Any Combat Abilities”
Think Bruce Lee is the “greatest fighter ever”? This man is not impressed!
Bruce Lee wasn't only a popular Hollywood action star and a martial artist back in the days. Fast forward to the present, Lee is considered by many as "the greatest fighter ever" and even Dana White, president of UFC, called him as "the father of mixed martial arts."
During Lee's time, MMA didn't exist yet but he shunned traditional martial arts and created his own he called Jeet Kune Do, a hybrid philosophy that literally means "the way of the intercepting fist" in Cantonese. His goal, according to him, was to simplify and get rid of the “fancy mess that distorts and cramps their practitioners and distracts them from the actual reality of combat”.
