The Conquest - copper& silver cauldron - 2002

    The shape is derived from ancient Greek, Thracian and Celtic ritual vessels. The decision to make a cauldron related to these cultures was two folded - First, to underline their influence on Western art forms and second, to study how the shapes of containers relate to the preciousness of the liquid they were meant to hold. Only one of the nine scenes is a battle. The rest shows different stages of medieval life pointing at the most important feature of the Bayeux tapestry - its documentary quality. The conquest for power, land and possessions can be turned into a conquest for life



    The body is raised from one piece of copper and covered with border divided on nine sections in which a selected scene from the tapestry is rendered in silver repousee. The support of the vessel consists of three horses in geometric style, cast from bronze and copper alloy, The nine silver repousse scenes are raised from pure silver, reinforced and set in the copper frames on the top of the vessel. There is also a silver repousse medallion set in the bottom of the cauldron.


    The work was selected to be part of the Reflections of the Conquest: Art and Object Inspired by the World of the Bayeux Tapestry -a juried exhibition including both historic reproductions and modern original works inspired by the Bayeux Tapestry. February 2, 2002 to March 30, 2002.
