Any art work has a defintite artistic and commercial worth regardless of the stuff used by their author. There can therefore be precious art works made of common substance as well as would-be art works made of gold. The former will be valued for the artistic worth  per se whereas the latter will be valued only for the intrinsic value of their noble material.

In the case of Aldo Macor the artist’s grace is combined with the preciousness of the material. We are facing real Jewels of Art.
