In our presentation at Museo Bagatti Valsecchi, we have answered with an homage to our ancestral roots. A Special Edition of the PEACOCK, reinterpreted as part of the past, carefully restored in the contemporary world.
The BLACK PEACOCK is an anomaly to the collection, a metaphor for events of surprise and mystery. Taking traditional technique of applying many coatings of resin, sometimes harvested from trees such as poison oaks or black trees. The finish produces a visually striking and enduring surface, reinforcing the idea of freezing a moment of beauty.It offers a new perspective on the process making of PEACOCK as a piece viewed as a true art object.
