MIGUEL BERROCAL Vintage "Micro David" Puzzle Sculpture Key Ring Pendant
A fabulous Vintage "Micro David" puzzle sculpture pendant/key ring by renowned Spanish artist Miguel Ortiz Berracol from 1971! This fantastic and unusual 3-dimensional piece depicts a muscular male nude bust, which is put together in an interesting puzzle-like fashion. Crafted from a variety of metals, including beryllium bronze, stainless steel, nickel, and tin zamac, over 10 individual pieces stack together to form the body, which hangs from a large round bail at the top. As the puzzle pieces are taken apart, a golden woven ring is revealed, along with a vibrant blue cabochon stone set within a puzzle piece, both otherwise hidden within the center of the sculpture. The delicate ring can be removed and worn on the finger, and dangling from the center of the band is an homage to the male genitalia. The sculpture sits atop a sturdy square base, perfect for displaying, or the bail allows it to hang from a favorite key ring or chain as a pendant. Stamped along the shoulder is the artist's signature hallmark "Berrocal." This fun and funky sculpture is an iconic collectors piece which can be worn in variety of ways, making it a fabulous addition to any collection!
Measurements: The sculpture pendant hangs approximately 2 3/4" long (including the bail at the top), measures 3/4" wide, and 1/2" thick. The hidden ring is a finger size 5.5, and due to it's design, cannot be resized.
Condition: The overall condition of the puzzle sculpture is great. Besides normal surface wear, there is no serious damage to the sculpture, puzzle pieces, or ring which fit properly and securely together. The bail is secure and in good working order.
