This little iconic putto, forever bored with these humans and this physical planet, is from Raphael’s Sistine Madonna. I had to revisit this painting to take a closer look. Pictured is Madonna holding Christ Child, Saint Sixtus and Saint Barbara on either side of her, and behind them dozens of ghostly putti and below the two iconic winged babes, watching on. It’s said they are wistfully looking to the heavens, indeed bored of this place.

This delightful Belle Époque interpretation of one of the iconic figures – in the warm glow of 20 karat gold, was exquisitely crafted in the delicate artistry of repoussé. This ethereal piece weighs a mere 3.8 grams and measures 28.3 x 20.2 x 1.3 millimeters. Its surface is adorned with intricate details that evoke the divine presence of a putto, masterfully sculpted in relief. The hallmark of the eagle head, a symbol of French authenticity and excellence, is alongside the "20k" mark, attesting to its superior quality and craftsmanship.

Like the painting it emulates, this enchanting piece of jewelry transcends time, (500 years, in fact for the painting!) and is a testament to the exquisite artistry and enduring elegance of early 20th-century French craftsmanship.
