$5,500

About

18th century Italian hand-carved gold leaf angel wing on a smoky quartz cluster. The hand-carved gold leaf angel wing is originally from a church in Liguria. This piece is particularly rare and exquisite due to its unique shape and size. The depth alone is 8 inches. The ecclesiastical artifact is mounted on a bed of smoky quartz. The mineral originally came from Brazil. The piece is put together by Jean O'Reilly Barlow, the artist and creative director of Interi. The date of manufacture reflects when she created the piece and the period shows that the Italian angel wing is originally 18th century. The Italian angel wing has been joined together with the smoky quartz cluster to create a new sculptural work of old and new, creating a piece that appears to have evolved together over time. Interpreting the past to create a piece entirely original, evolving in its own right. Through the preservation of the ecclesiastical artifact, it carries historical prominence and significance while being transformed into a contemporary work of art. Rococo meets organic modern.
