Description/

Ernst was closely involved in the Surrealist and Dada movements, and the step toward the oversized can be read in this context. He would no doubt have enjoyed the idea that the work began to wear the viewer rather than the other way around.
Executed in 22 to 24ct gold, Ernst’s jewels are some of the most arresting of the Hugo collaborations. Although all are technically ‘pendants’, some measure as much as 15 cm in diameter, making them more breastplate than delicate jewel.
The jewels made by Max Ernst are dramatic and abstract. They refer to faces but no face is identifiable.

 

23k gold medallion.
