Anti War Medal

A brooch made of 18kt yellow and 14kt white golds, sterling silver and hand fired enamels.
This is my entry into the 'Anti War Medal' exhibit at the Velvet de Vinci Gallery in San Francisco in October 2003

"Even while continuing to honor the memory of the fallen, we must never lose our horror, never try to integrate war and its consequences into our longing for the sacred.
…If we confront mass death naked, stripped of all myth, we may avoid making the devil's pact with that aggressive nationalism whose blood trail has marked our century."
