In this precious object, the ancient technique of bizantine mosaic is reconsidered in a contemporary key: the antique varnishes, still producted in a historic furnace in Venezia completely handmade, are flanked to spun Murano's murrine.
The miscellany of these materials, cut and built handling by the artist in a smart and unique design, allows to create wavy surfaces who permit the light refraction and the shine of the object with every light.
In this panel, an inspiration from the 50's fumetto, the varnishes have the vivid colours of the Pop Art and in every letter they're wrought in a different way.
Measures: cm. 13x 53x3 (circa)
