Dead bird gold brooch
Solid 18ct gold brooch in the form of a dead bird from an edition of six.
H. 5.9 cm
The theme for this brooch was inspired directly from the dead bird he sculpted on the Door of Death (1962-1964) for St Peter's in the Vatican. Indeed, he produced brooches inspired all six small dead animals that appear towards the bottom of the door. Each brooch was produced in an edition of six, which he made in his own studio.
