The work carried out in the Museo del Prado's Restoration Workshops brought out Fra Angelico's technical perfection, as well as the rich expressive values he conferred on the Archangel's wings, which gained even more prominence after the intervention. Once restored, the panel was scanned three-dimensionally in ultra-high definition, which served as the basis for the design of this bracelet, which faithfully depicts the original outline of the feathers.
"Angel Wing" bracelet
24 carat gold plated brass. Hand-cast and hand-finished in Spain.
This exquisite design by Chus Burés, produced in an exclusive limited edition for the Museo del Prado, celebrates the recovery of the splendour of the wings of the Archangel Gabriel painted by Fra Angelico in his well-known Annunciation (ca. 1426), which has been painstakingly restored in the Museum's workshops.
