A concept/illustration of a key component to a story/world/book I'm putting together.
"The Marble Plague is an insidious condition that creeps across the victim's skin, immobilizing limbs and claiming body parts. There is no cure, and sufferers cannot remove their stone without risk of further injury or even death. They can, however, gently carve the surface to become more presentable; some might even call it an art."
I have over 100 references of classical marble sculptures (faces, drapery/cloth, poses, raw texture, etc) that I have for free up on gumroad. Check them out here! https://gum.co/lFexY
