Cosmic Couple – cm 20×12,5×4

€ 200,00

The Cosmic Couple is formed by the combination of two old anatomical charts on the sky of the Scrovegni Chapel, inside two ancient Persian anatomical charts. The couple seems to oscillate like a metronome in the starry sky, at the same time it has been anatomized: the open body, the explanted organs, the one’s removed: a Love that consumes / devours the body… with a smile, with lightness and irony.

Gentleman with dressing gown – cm 10×6,3×3,5

€100,00

The Man with a Dressing Gown is an image for its own sake: elegant, tasteful, brimming with homosexual sexuality.

Gentleman with dressing gown – cm 15×9,5×3,4

€150,00

Female Golfers Couple – cm 10×6,3×3,5

€100,00

The Female Golfers Couple are lovers (inside the box, a Courbet’s painting shows them in bed: they could really be the same in the cap of the box, due to their similarity). Among them there is an unspoken attraction, a common silence, a sense of pleasure.

Boxes of Wonder

Paolo Carandini lives and works in Florence. He has been designing and creating exquisite objects using parchment and naturally dyed calf leather since 1991. Every box is entirely handmade. Starting with a wooden frame, each box is covered by either kid parchment or calf leather. The images on the lid as well as those inside the box are sealed in transparent parchment using a unique technique. The objects inside the box are made either of parchment or other materials. Each one of the Boxes of Wonder is one of a kind. Specific themed boxes can be custom made to order.
