Michaël Cailloux is devoted and passionate about Art Nouveau and especially René Lalique’s jewellery with his sketches and theatrical combs. The artist viscerally sculpts copper with jewellery craftsmanship and etching techniques. With “Manthis Religiosa”, the praying mantis merges with nature and becomes floral and plant-like. The insect is dressed in bindweeds, a flower often represented in the artist’s work.

"My soul inclines upon your brow, my dear, where it seems, That autumn, strewn with freckles dreams"*, the lizard seems to be saying to mother nature. A personified nature, deified in a way that evokes ancient Native American religions, in the style of Aztec bas-relief. We find here two dear subjects of reflexion to Michaël Cailloux: nature and dream. A nature created by fantasy, where dreaming offers an image and a feeling. It’s an invocation, setting up the artist to build his personal vision on, to bring us along for a peculiar journey echoing forgotten magic. *Mallarmé
