Marble totem washbasins represent an aesthetic detail that allows granting exclusivity and singularity to the spaces seeking differentiation.
These sculptural pieces of natural stone are a clear example of how to create a cult object with an element that, a priori, must be above all functional.
Temporal, geographical and aesthetic eclecticism
Marble totem washbasins are the result of an extraordinary fusion between different sculptural elements. Each reference belongs to different periods, geographical areas and has its own rituals related to well-being and spirituality.
The influence of Zen Style and the relaxing aesthetics of Japanese fountains is undeniable. However, Western culture has also enjoyed water-related natural stone containers or fountains for centuries.
In 313 B.C. Emperor Constantine promulgated the Edict of Milan and allowed freedom of religion in the Roman Empire. From that moment Christianity ceased to be persecuted and was fully tolerated. It was at this time that great baptismal fonts carved in stone appeared to carry out the sacrament of baptism, related to spiritual purification.
Finally, we cannot forget the totems. As a sculptural figure, they have positively influenced the shape of this type of washbasin to the point of sharing the name.
Carved in stone or wood, these works of art gave identity to tribes and cultures of America, Asia or Africa.
