Product Description

This ring, my entry for the National Gallery of Denmark Collection Jewelry Design Contest, blends elements of Lucas Cranach the Elder's 1532 painting “Melancholy,” humoral theory, and my own interpretation of the experience of melancholy. Earthen elements intertwine with a snake and are capped in a female elk’s head: melancholy is one of the two classical temperaments linked with the feminine aspect. The animals are styled after their depictions in Cranach the Elder's "Deer and Boar Hunting.” The body of the snake wraps around the astrological symbol for Saturn, the heavenly counterpart to the melancholic. The arrangement of motifs recalls their composition in the background of the painting: precariously situated on the brink of chaos. One might imagine the witches in the background of the painting as wearing such a ring as this.
