Amulet #1, part of Assemblage II: Amulets

image: 3” diameter, watch: 3 ¾” x 3 ¼” x ¼”


silver-plated pocket watch, colored pencil, rhinestone (under loop)

“Amulet #1” was a symbolic reminder of the pain and harsh reality of losing someone dear to us, reminiscent of a memento mori object.  It was also part of the group of 20 displayed inside a vitrine in my Flint Institute of Arts exhibit.
