Sculpture representing a woman's body in evening wear.
"I imagined this sculpture by creating a bronze ribbon (brown parts) to wrap a black lace dress (steel) and enhance it with a gold necklace. This sculpture is made of steel and bronze drops and the necklace is covered with 24-carat gold leaf. To make this metal lace, I melted the steel and bronze drop by drop in a sand mold in which I previously shaped the model.
I then created a necklace made of steel drops that I covered with 24-carat gold leaf. On the back of the sculpture I created a 25 cm high metal lace. The upper part of the sculpture therefore plays with the transparency of the lace and the bottom gives it an impression of a large neckline in the back and ensures great stability. This sculpture is unique and signed by my hand." - Philippe Buil
