Your Image In Marble

Only one person will have the opportunity to acquire the ultimate gift while supporting an urgent cause. With your successful bid at auction comes the chance to commission a unique sculpture by world-renowned artist Márton Váró, who will immortalize the person of your choice–a loved one, an ancestor, or yourself–in Carrara, the finest marble in the world. The figure you select will emerge life-size out of marble cut from the same quarry in Italy where Michelangelo obtained his stone.

One-hundred percent of the auction’s proceeds support the Visual Snow Initiative, dedicated to education, research, and finding a cure for Visual Snow Syndrome, a neurological condition that affects the eyesight, hearing, and quality of life of thousands of people worldwide.

  • First-class air and ground transportation to the beautiful Tuscan Riviera
  • A luxurious four-night stay at the exclusive Principe Forte dei Marmi with its world-class spa, Michelin-starred restaurant, and beach club with private yacht service
  • A day excursion to the quarry where you and Marton Varo select the stone that he will sculpt into a life-size sculpture
  • A video documentary capturing the creation of your statue at every stage, from the first strike of the chisel to the final masterstroke

Beginning December 1, place your bid online to acquire this priceless gift that benefits a worthy cause.

The Visual Snow Initiative is a public charity under the fiscal sponsorship of the Edward Charles Foundation, a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization. All donations are tax deductible under the extent allowed by law. For more information or to make a donation, visit
