This is a Necklace. It was designed by Hermann Jünger. It is dated 1994 and we acquired it in 2016. Its medium is gold. It is a part of the Product Design and Decorative Arts department.

As one of Germany’s premier goldsmiths, Hermann Jünger introduced an entirely new aesthetic that combined a superb painter’s eye and sensitivity to three-dimensional form with consummate technical mastery. As both artist and teacher his influence was far-reaching throughout Europe and the United States.
