Satin silk square – Limited edition – 78 X 78 cm Dry clean
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.
"Cameo" - Size L.16,6 x H.18,2 cm - Unique artwork
Michaël Cailloux reappropriates the copper sheets used to print his etchings by working them according to classic jewel making techniques: bow saw, internal and external cutting, embossing and chiseling. Discover Michaël Cailloux's Craft.
