Sterling silver, 18K yellow gold, lapis lazuli, bronze, ebony, steel, patinas
As part of Lluís Comín's Ithaca collection, a valiant portrait of Ulysses is positioned proudly from out of a plane of sterling silver. Here, Comín masterfully sculpts a composition to convey the varied, organic beauty of our nature. A strong base of ebony astounds the eye with its fibrous texture. To the touch, one receives a sense of its humble, biotic beginnings. As if Ulysses being born from the complex compounds of the stone, his molded portion of silver stretches across the ebony. Its undulating surface is fashioned in artful consideration, so that one may nearly perceive the chest of our Grecian hero. With a pleasing contrast of bronze, its maker spurs further interest from his admirers. Lapis lazuli and high karat gold balance the composition, strengthening its profile in proportion, leaving us to gaze upon its body in wonder.
