I was taking a customer on a round of my showroom. Looking at marble sculptures, he wondered and pondered. My inquisitive nature took a leap and I found myself asking “Is there something I can help you with, Sir?” and what came after was a barrage of questions.

‘Will the marble break?’

‘Will the color of the marble fade?’

‘Will it weather?’

‘Do I have to spend more on the maintenance?”

The answer to all of them is No.

The colored marble statues do not loose their color as they are stone in itself. So that colored brown dress on that lady is going to remain brown.
