Some of the most beautiful things in the world simply take our breath away. One of them is a salt cellar created by Benvenuto Cellini (1500-1571), ‘the greatest goldsmith in the world’ according to Michelangelo. This Renaissance Italian sculptor had an exceptional talent. He was able to create genuine miracles using gold, silver, wood and marble. The world-famous artist had been working for the most affluent and mighty people of his time. He created many outstanding objects of art, including the most valuable and superior one – the salt cellar ordered by Francis I of France. Cellini had been working on his masterpiece for three years.

MASTERPIECE OF THE GREATEST GOLDSMITH
OF ALL TIME! THE MOST EXPENSIVE SALT CELLAR IN THE WORLD: THE SALIERA BY BENVENUTO CELLINI

A priceless description of Cellini’s work can be found in his diary: „(Saliera) was oval in shape, about 30 cm tall, hammered in gold with the use of a stylus (...). The Earth was depicted as a woman in her utmost beauty, with elaborately decorated temple next to her. I have put flowers in her hand, overflowing with natural abundance. Below the figure, in the land part, I have depicted magnificent animals. In the sea part, respectively, I created so many species of fish and shells that one could barely imagine on such a small surface”. Next to Neptune, Cellini placed a ship – a salt container, while pepper was served in a temple next to Ceres. The base of the sculp- ture is decorated with the personifications of four winds, times of day and symbols of human activity.
