Each panel has a dimension of 90 cm × 67.5 cm. The thickness has a range between 3 cm and 7 cm. The application process is a regular gluing for natural stone.

The eyes are delighted and the brain confounded by the juxtaposition of out-of-the-box pigments that enter the natural texture of the marble veins, forming a irregular, organic and energetic colorations in the gleaming glass slabs.
