Ed. of 25 | Numbered by the Artist
Inspired by the unique magnificence of the peacock—whose feathers have adorned the manufacturer's decorative repertoire since the 18th century—the chromatic display of tiny brush strokes brings a single feather to life across the dome of this elegantly rendered skull.
Each piece within this limited edition series is numbered and carries the personal signature of the artist who painted it. Painters at the manufacturer work without templates and must apprentice for many years before they are able to take on certain tasks.
Memento mori – remember that you are mortal." This expression comes from the Medieval Latin written by monks and is the basis of a genre of art that has found expression in a wide variety of designs at Nymphenburg over the course of four centuries. A contemporary interpretation is created every year in the Nymphenburg master workshops in the form of the limited edition skull.
