This remarkable sculpture, titled Dog, is a creation of the renowned surrealist sculptor Alberto Giacometti in 1951. While it bears a simple title, the sculpture itself is anything but ordinary. Giacometti's work is celebrated for its ability to convey complex emotions and ideas through minimalist forms. Intriguingly, this sculpture captures the essence of a Saluki dog, an ancient breed known for its elegance and hunting prowess. Some dog researchers consider the Saluki to be the oldest breed of dog in the world, and Giacometti's sculpture pays homage to the unique character and history of this breed. Giacometti's inspiration for this piece came from a moment of introspection as he walked along Rue de Vanves in the rain. He described feeling akin to a dog at that moment, and this sensation led him to create the sculpture. The sculpture's sad and introspective expression is a reflection of this emotional connection between the artist and the subject matter. As with much of Giacometti's work, Dog invites viewers to contemplate the human condition and our relationship with the world around us. It's a testament to the power of art to capture the essence of life and emotion in its simplest forms.

Jewelry Care

If you wear your jewelry on a regular basis; simply polishing regularly with a soft cloth will keep it looking its best. If your jewelry does tarnish, we recommend Sunshine Polishing Cloths which can be purchased on Amazon. These cloths will remove tarnish from sterling and bronze easily and quickly. Simply rub your jewelry with the cloth and voila, tarnish is gone. Once the cloth blackens all over, it's time to use a new one.
