Margot de Taxco Mexican silver Viking dragon ship Pin Brooch, des. no 5131

on Oct 11, 2019 in archived

An adventurer in design and a dreamer, Margot de Taxco kept wide open horizons when it came to creative inspiration. Her jewelry betrays the mental and physical journeys she undertook as motifs from Japan and China, Scandinavia, ancient Rome and Egypt were added to the incredible richness of Maya and Aztec iconography. This Viking dragon ship brooch is an example of those journeys that does not come up very often. Endearingly “caricaturesque”, it is crafted of thick sterling silver sheet and exhibits seamless overlay and deep hand-chased details…
