An Oxus opaque carnelian cameo inlay of recumbent oryx, a symbol of power and virility (6th - 5th Century BC).
Pippa Small is delighted to present her new collection 'Old is New', made in collaboration with Joseph Coplin, the co-owner of New York's Antiquarium Ltd. Fine Ancient Arts Gallery.
Madison Avenue's Antiquarium has specialised in the sale of the highest quality authentic antiques from the Classical, Egyptian, and Near Eastern worlds since 1979. Works of art from Antiquarium compliment the collections of many the world's finest museums and most prestigious academic institutions.
Pippa has long been inspired by the crafts of the ancient world, the feeling of life, history, politics and economics that is conveyed in these pieces, as well as the eternal concepts of beauty and appreciation of astounding skills of the anonymous ancient goldsmiths which is unsurpassed today.
Pieces of the Old is New collection act as tiny museum pieces that can be worn and incorporated into our everyday lives, full of magic and meaning and infused with the life stories from kingdoms, cultures, and communities past.
