Limited Edition 2019 Box with Devil Midsummer Night's Dream

13x7 cm, 290 g
In 1969, Professor Heinz Werner created a modern interpretation of the "Midsummer Night's Dream". Applied to a box design by Peter Strang from 2003, this venerated artwork has been set in a new context. Using Werner's signature "dance of blossoms" style, the bottom of the box is decorated with elves suggestively depicted with loosely arranged clusters of flowers and leaves. The night in the magical forest is set through the cobalt-blue thickets of flowers that were painted on and stippled to create a nebulous effect. The piece's narrative moments are reflected in symbolic details across the entire vase: the nightingale and the "love-in-idleness" flower are both used as decorative motifs in a range of brilliant colours. Gold and platinum ornaments create lustrous accents.
