Cameo

Theme – « Still-life »

The plants, beasts, fish and insects that populate our countryside have always been an immediate source of inspiration for Michaël Cailloux, and still-life is his favourite theme. Hence his signature, the fly, bringing life where there was none… Drawing on various influences, «Cameo» references the era of Pharaohs and Egypt at its grandest, by putting the first engravings of beetles in jewel form. The beetle was a symbol of rebirth for the dead, and a protective talisman for the living.
