The sconce is designed from the wonderful Ginkgo Biloba tree, one of the oldest in mankind. In Asian culture, ginkgo symbolically represents duality: the male and female principle, the sky and earth, the visible and the occult, the Sun and Moon, yin and yang. That’s why it’s considered a sacred tree. Veronica Mar works with enlightenment and its inherent duality. Thus her Ginkgo is a tree that shade illuminates.
The piece is handmade, one by one, leaves and branches are welded by hand with great care, by these expert craftsmen in Spain, who have been making for more than 60 years from monumental sculptures to the smallest pieces of jewelry. The sconce is plated in 24k gold.
