The Roman Marriage Vows. A great wedding Present !

In Roman times, the vows exchanged by the spouses were for the Wife : “Ubi tu Gaius, Ego Gaia” (Wherever you are Gaoius, I shall be Gaia), to which the Husband would answer : “Ubi to Gaia, Ego Gaius” (Wherever you are Gaia, I am Gaius). The Roman wedding was actually quite an egalitarian institution.

This piece, built according to the Reverse Method, is made of 8 different materials : Black Granite, Beige Travertine, and 6 different ceramics for the outside “Guilloche” border
