Rolls-Royce adds fine art to new Phantom with The Gallery Artist Commissions

The image was then analysed and reworked in clay and wax before being optimised to fit The Gallery space. The finished piece was then machined in aluminium, then polished and curved to resemble the shapes of the original fabric.
