Custom designed for the Detroit Institute of Arts!
This square absorbent stone trivet has a wonderful full-color 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 trivet shows a detail of the furnace in the Production and Manufacture of Engine and Transmission from the North Wall Automotive Panel of the Detroit Industry fresco cycle. Three other styles are available.
Each trivet has a fade resistant image and a cork backing to protect your table or counter from heat and scratches.
Optional stand allows for display when not in use.
Dimensions: 6" x 6" x 5/16"
