1991 – “Talisman” Necklace

Dates: October 1991.

Exhibited was a necklace of ebony and silver spheres connected by elliptical rings.

The silver part of each sphere is delicately sculpted to resemble the surface of the moon, with all its hills and craters, and as a whole, the necklace accurately depicts a complete lunar phase, like a scientific object. The piece was made in an edition of eight by the Société des Amis du Musée national d’art modern and became part of the Guggenheim Museum in New York’s collection.

Location: Centre George Pompidou, Paris before being acquired by the Guggenheim Museum in New York.
