Lotus shaped earrings inspired by ancient Egypt, and decorated in an enamelling technique called cloisonné.
The cloisonné technique used here was highly appreciated by the ancient Egyptians. Also, symbolism always played a very important role in Egyptian art. The lotus flower, as featured in this design, is directly linked to the idea of rebirth. It is from this flower that the sun rises every morning. In the Book of the Dead of ancient Egypt, a chapter is devoted to the rebirth of the deceased under this aspect.
The colours are also symbolic: the colour red evokes the notion of energy and dynamism, the dark blue of lapis lazuli symbolizes the deep blue of the sky at night, while the light blue of the turquoise stone is a symbol of joy.
These unique pieces accompany the exhibition Ancient lives, new discoveries. A matching necklace and bracelet are also available. Please note that for hygiene reasons, pierced earrings cannot be returned.
