This is “AES”, “copper” in latin.
It’s the first print of a serie dedicated to metals.
Copper is linked to the female planet Venus since a distant mythological era.
We’ve to go back, in fact, to a Mediterranean island, once ruled by a love-goddess: Cyprus.
It was regarded as the domain of Venus-Aphrodite, also known as the 'Cyprian goddess'.
The Island was known for the veins of copper since the sumeric period.
The design of this print was originally made for a beer label of the small italian brewery called “Fermento”.
“AES” is printed in two different versions.
The main one is printed with 3 metallic colors on black paper, limited edition of 54 copies.
The variant is printed with 3 metallic colors plus copper leaf on black metallic paper, limited edition of 10 copies.
Both versions will hit our store on Friday January 11 at random time!
