Graphically the snake is a line. But it is a living line that can take the form of all the environments that surround it, whose flexibility allows the most unexpected attitudes. This explains the dual symbolism of the snake: it represents the caress and the surprise. These are the meanings with which it becomes part of the iconographic language of all the peoples of the world: it expresses the idea of sexuality and enchantment on the one hand, and subtlety and cunning on the other. A double meaning (creative sensuality and diabolical evil) that we find in all cultures, from the most ancient to the most developed ones.

The couture lamps collection made with snake bodies, inspired by reviving nature and the integration between their wild beauty with contemporary art.

This artwork is a resemblance of my passions: light design, shape research, luxury and snakes.
From such marriage of passions originated my unique lamps, produced with snakes from all over the world, whom died of natural causes, as I bring life back into them by shaping their muscles and shining their bodies.

 

VITTORIA

A one piece table lamp creation made of a female Boa Hypo Arabesque snake who naturally died 2 years ago at the age of 3.5 years. Her natural beauty and sensual shape was the source of inspiration in the creation process.
