Fauna: new book about the collection of jewels of the Musée des Arts Décoratifs, partner of L'Ecole


The Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris continues its trilogy of books on its jewelry collections, in partnership with the School of Jewelery Arts, with the second theme that of Fauna (Flore was the first theme released in 2016 - Figure the third theme will be released during spring 2018).

A selection of the 130 most beautiful pieces centered on the animal shows that, from the Antiquity to our days, it has not stopped to inspire the creators. This second volume gives us an aerial bestiary, tiny, aquatic, insidious, domestic, wild and fantastic. The poetic pictures of Jean-Marie del Moral, with natural light, reveal all the beauty of these jewels.
