If Michelangelo

(who may not have known much about the great variety of marbles in Italy alone)
had carved in coloured stone (perhaps Rosso Elisabetta, Verde Malachite
or Blu Venato) instead of boring white Carrara (quarried by slaves
and carried by half-murdered mules), his grandiose
(not to say grotesque) statues might have been interesting
and good to look at.
