Marc d'Haenens Magnificent Signed Illuminated Wall Sculpture

$12,263.72

About

This is a sublime piece by the hugely influential and world renowned Belgian artist Marc d'Haenens. The quality and scale of this piece cannot be overstated, a single enormous slice of agate sits within the Brutalist gilt body, this is surrounded by huge crystal shards, and onyx eggs. The agate and crystals are backlit by two bulbs, giving the piece an incredible ambience when illuminated. Fully signed by the artist, this is without question one of the most impressive works by d'Haenens available on the market, it dates to the early 1980's and is one of those pieces that goes beyond sculptural lighting, it is nothing short of Brutalist High Art, a masterpiece by one of the worlds' most prominent Brutalist artists. Attaches to the wall with it's own bracket (shown in photo) Measures: Height 137cm x Width 36cm x Depth 17cm. Agate height 32cm x Width 26cm. The lead is 1 metre long, but could be easily lengthened if necessary, currently fitted with a UK plug. The light is wired and in full working order, but as with all our lighting we would always suggest it is fitted and tested by a qualified electrician.
