Aletta brings the beat of angel wings into the home. Made of fine brass plate the wings can be hung up in a traditional way as protection of the home or used to decorate Christmas trees. The inspiration for the wings came from an archaeological find dating from the 18th century that Katrin Arens found in a drawer in a gold plating workshop on Via Sant’Alessandro.
The wings are about 9 x 10 cms and weigh only 10 grams.
Small brass plate protectors.
