A twist on the classics, the design of this piece is pulled directly from Maddalena Doni's portrait by Raffaello. The Renaissance serves as a beacon for the height of intellect, here, being re-appropriated with contemporary thought. By using bone in place of precious stone, thoughts of death or mortality are at play.
