A DIA Exclusive!
Take home this tumbled marbled stone coaster which has a wonderful reproduction of a detail from Diego Rivera's Detroit Industry fresco cycle, a favorite in the collection of the Detroit Institute of Arts.
Diego Rivera came to Detroit and completed the Detroit Industry murals at the Detroit Institute of Arts from April 1932 to March 1933.
The Detroit Industry fresco cycle was conceived by Mexican muralist Diego Rivera (1886–1957) as a tribute to the city's manufacturing base and labor force of the 1930s. The twenty-seven panel work is considered the finest example of Mexican mural art in the United States, and the artist thought it the best work of his career.
This stone coaster shows a detail of the fender stamping press in the Production of Automobile Exterior and Final Assembly from the South Wall Automotive Panel of the Detroit Industry fresco cycle. Three other styles are available.
Each coaster has a fade resistant image and a cork backing to protect your furniture.
Collect one of each of four styles, or choose your favorite.
