The ecclesiastical artifact is mounted on a bed of smoky quartz. The mineral originally came from Brazil.
The Italian angel wing has been joined together with the smoky quartz cluster to create a sculptural work of old and new, creating a piece that appears to have evolved together over time. Interpreting the past to create a piece entirely original, evolving in its own right. Through the preservation of the ecclesiastical artifact, it carries historical prominence and sacred significance while being transformed into a contemporary work of art.
