Death and the Maiden Locket Charm Necklace
I love Egon Schiele and in my first year at art school I went on a trip to London. I was incredibly lucky as I managed to score tickets to see the Gustav Klimt exhibition with Egon Schiele supporting at The Royal Academy. On the same trip I also saw the Seagram Murals by Mark Rothko at the Tate – but that is another tale for another time.
The art of Klimt and Schiele was breath taking and it felt that same as the first time I trip off to see my newest favourite band play live – like a huge surge of electricity. Even now, years later, if I feel a little bit down in the mouth I always head for my nearest art gallery as I believe great art is good for the soul. I actually was more excited about seeing Schiele’s work – so dark and edgy a little bit raw – all about life, love and death… ah I think perhaps the makings of Hoolala were right there even then.
So this one I dedicate to a troubled soul and genius – Mr. Egon Schiele who rocked my work and my world in the 1990’s.
The necklace is made up with a locket charm of a beautiful Victorian lady on an illuminated crucifix, a small charm of an anatomical skull and several other charms. The necklaces is silver plated and measures 64 cms.
