Marble was the most prestigious material for sculptors in the Baroque period. Unlike the artists of the Renaissance such as Michelangelo who would go and meticulously choose the marble themselves. Artists in the Baroque such as Bernini would use agents at the quarries to select their marble for them, providing detail information on dimension. The standard size of marble was the carrata, which weighed 1 ton. And was named due to the fact that it required two oxen to pull the cart which carried it.
