Hansel & Smith - MUSEUM LABEL Buckle Brooch
Hansel & Smith x National Heritage Board, Singapore
Inspired by ancient Javanese gold and Riau metalwork in the collection of the Asian Civilisations Museum, these contemporary interpretations reflect Raffles' interest in the Hindu-Buddhist antiquities of Java, as well as his interactions with the Johor-Riau-Lingga Islands. Stone sculptures from ancient Javanese temples were frequently depicted wearing elaborate jewellery closely resembling examples from the museum's collection.
Designed and handcrafted by Handmade Republic for MUSEUM LABEL, Asian Civilisations Museum.
Each piece is individually handcrafted using traditional hand-sawn method. Slight differences may occur in each unique piece.
