Recycled Leather Belt modular floor tiles by London-based designers Ting. Each belt is hand selected to ensure a high grade of leather, after which belts are cleaned, also by hand, with chemical free substance and prepared for use. The belts are then shaved, so all are the same width, and finally they are laid carefully onto a reconstituted leather backing applied with a water-based glue. | http://www.tinglondon.com/
Although Modigliani is known primarily as a painter, he fostered ambitions to become a sculptor early on in his career. Paul Alexandre, his friend and first faithful patron, engineered a meeting with Constantin Brancusi in 1909. This encouraged Modigliani to return to stone carving and for almost three years he virtually abandoned portrait painting. Some 25 sculptures survive from this formative period in his career.
