Seagull and Moon III.
The jewellery serie Seagull and moon is made based on the novel Jonathan Livingston Seagull (1970) written by the American writer Richard Bach (1936 – ). The central motifs are the silvergull and the Moon.
The bronze object cast from beeswax depicts the seagull in a particular moment of flight between two worlds. At the two ends of the cord, there are phosphor bronze spheres that symbolize the moons of the two worlds. The person wearing the jewel can move the pendant higher or lower on the black cord and the bird will remain in that position.
„… we choose our next world through what we learn in this one. Learn nothing, and the nest world is the same as this one, all the same limitations and lead weights to overcome …” R. Bach
