Be Long in Coming Brooch
This is a brooch. It was designed by Jantje Fleischhut. It is dated 2007 and we acquired it in 2016. Its medium is silver, resin, print. It is a part of the Product Design and Decorative Arts department.
With this brooch, Fleischhut creates a story inspired by a legend about the Dolomite Mountains. The oval form features the faint outline of an enigmatic figure appearing before wind turbines and snow-covered mountains obscured by a misty, glowing amber sky. By playing with scale, and juxtaposing modern technology and nature, Fleischhut creates an imaginative, mysterious scene.
