Silver Diamond Agate Sculpture

 

Precious sculpture "Spaniel Duck Hunting" is a masterpiece of the cabinet plastic art. This work was a continuation of the traditions of the artisans of the 19th century, i.e. Eugene Lanceray, Nikolai Lieberich, Vasily Grachev. Their creations during the heyday of the cabinet sculptures were quite popular and decorated living rooms, staterooms, consulting rooms of lawyers and the palaces of the nobility. Traditionally, the dolls (i.e. small sculptural forms were called so) portrayed everyday scenes or hunting.

Cabinet sculpture "Spaniel Duck Hunting" was executed in the animalistic style. The original canine grace is shown extremely reliably. The exultancy of the dedicated soldier is felt in the diamond glance, in the jittering of short tail, in the tension of slender neck of the bird dog. A little more and he will put the booty at the feet of the hunter.

"Prince of diversity among gems", agate, is the base of the composition. Experts numbering one hundred and fifty types of the agate colorings, but, in fact, they are individual for each stone.

In the Spaniel Duck Hunting, jewelers of Lobortas based the sand-colored agate in the slices of which the world of amazing shapes is concealed. Sometimes in the sawn ends of agate, so-called pupils can be met, and it indirectly confirms the legend about connection between agate and heavenly eagles.

Hunting scene is made of noble silver and encrusted with two types of diamonds.

Modern precious handcrafted sculpture "Spaniel Duck Hunting" is a masterpiece of jewelry and good hunting!
