This gorgeous and wearable work of art has long sold out - and makes quite the statement worn around the neck. It can also be framed. From the French manufacturer (we have hardly altered the clumsy English translation, for faithfulness):
Passionate about craftsmanship and studio work, Kiki Smith works the same way on original works of art or on editions and multiples. This gilded bronze medal, mounted in a long necklace, depicts the pattern of a great tapestry, named Sky, realized by Kiki Smith in 2012. Impressed by the discovery of the Apocalypse Tapestries in Angers, masterpieces of medieval art, the artist began in 2011 the realization of a great cycle of tapestries about nature and cosmos. Animals - hinds, wolves, eagles or butterflies - evolve freely in an idyllic nature, alongside human figures in majesty. A few of Kiki Smith’s main themes can be found in the engraved motifs : the decorative arts, nature and cosmos, as well as the harmonious relationship between animals and female bodies.
