Home Ring - This Month's Special
*Limited* Available only until November 2nd.
Not too far from where my father was born is a little cave that holds the remains of thousands of anonymous corpses, victims of the great plague of 1656 and cholera epidemics of the 1830s.
A group of women paid visits to these remains, lovingly cleaned them, created boxes, or "houses", and brought fresh flowers to adorn their skulls. Through this ritual they are paying respect to those devoid of proper burials.
While working from home this spring I carved this, thinking of all of us in our homes, during a global pandemic, and thinking of those who will not be returning home.
Each Home ring is handmade, just like the ones in Naples built by the cult.
- "Home" Measures Approx. 14mm x 15mm, sits 4.5mm high off the finger
