Jean-Claude Bonillo created this unique piece through lost wax technique in the 1970’s. A true multidisciplinary artist, Bonillo graduated from the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Marseille in 1962 and began to seek his unique style by practicing as an architect as well as finding influences in his blacksmith grandfather. Having been fascinated with metal work as a child, Bonillo eventually continued his work in sculpture, more specifically, jewelry. He appreciated jewelry in its raw form, an object that decorates the human body as well as an object that exists as a mediator between the person wearing it and its surroundings.
