JAPNESE, Egypt jewellery collection

$ 9,800
  • Description
    Without intention this collection honors and resumes the sacredness of Egyptian art. Lapis Lazuli, Ebony wood and gold leaf have been present since ancient times in Egyptian and Middle Eastern cultures. Magnificent art pieces have been manufactured in these three materials for more than five thousand years. The simultaneous use of them is traditionally Egyptian. This gives the collection its name: EGYPT.

    This collection is quite elaborate: highly skilled wax modelling and direct carving of organic shapes in ebony wood and supreme quality 1st grade Lapis Lazuli from Afghanistan combined with hand made silver chains and gold leaf applications.  The collection is a combination of demanding and ancient techniques, which makes these sculptural jewellery pieces so rare and valuable.

    Direct carving masters in stone are belonging to a genre that is more and more disappearing. The work of Julio Martínez Barnetche is of high technical mastery combined with a creative fluidity that has the capacity to reveal the aesthetics hidden in the crystalline structures of the stones or the inner life of wood specimens. Martínez Barnetche, who is an established pioneer of the direct carving technique, continues to stretch the limits within his three-dimensional work to new heights.
