Description

Wild or domestic, exotic or familiar, prosaic or fabulous, mythological or symbolic, the animal has naturally become a motif of aesthetic representation, and one of the most fertile sources of inspiration for ornamental art and jewelry. After a volume dedicated to flora, and before the one dedicated to the human figure, here are the secret bestiaries of the Jewelry Gallery of the Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris

The Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris continues its trilogy of books on its jewelry collections, with the second theme of wildlife. A selection of the 130 most beautiful pieces centered on animals shows that, from Antiquity to today, they have never ceased to inspire designers. This second volume gives us an aerial, tiny, aquatic, insidious, domestic, wild and fantastic bestiary. The poetic photos of Jean-Marie del Moral, in natural light, reveal all the beauty of these jewels
