Ai Weiwei. The Zodiac Charms
An exclusive jewelry collection in gold
Ai Weiwei and TASCHEN present an unprecedented fine art jewelry collaboration following the success of the artist’s Papercut Portfolio. With the Zodiac Charms, Ai returns to his seminal 2010 work Circle of Animals/Zodiac Heads, an exploration of history, authenticity, and cultural dialogue. In this new, exclusive jewelry version on the theme, he turns to the multifaceted personal meanings the Chinese zodiac has held over the centuries.
The charms have been sculpted by the artist based on its appearance in the earlier work and hand-cast in 999 pure gold.
