DALI: A lapis lazuli pendant cross
Dali collectors. A Lapis Lazuli carved cross set with diamonds and rubies. Not my taste in jewellery, but we have to recognise the maker. Jewels were just another mean of expression for the surrealist genius and he made his pieces daring and impacting and always with a meaning. For example he used Lapis Lazuli as a symbol of the subconscious. Another piece that will be auctioned by Sotheby's Geneva on May 17th.
