The photo glass is supported and both pieces are held together with the famous Italian Potoro Marble that is also used to decorate the front bevelled edge as well.

The bronze coated statue is then enamelled in the ”Japanned finish” of black and copper. The Glass is viewed in the Portrait position, but could also support a landscape photo if desired, as the glass edges are no restrained by end supports.
