"Las Meninas" (mastiff) pendant
Sterling silver plated in 24 carat gold. 0.8 x 12 cm (pendant). Handmade in Spain.
The dwarf Nicolasito Pertusato provokes a mastiff with his foot in one of the most endearing details of Velázquez's Las Meninas (1656), which masterfully immortalised the everyday life of Philip IV's family. The motif of this original pendant, designed exclusively for the Museo del Prado and with a cord available in four colours, is inspired by this dog.
