Inspired by the famous Geneva herbariumBASELWORLD 2017: The Son of Sea Tourbillon 1/1
ArtyA introduces another creative work with the one-of-a-kind Son of Sea Tourbillon. Inspired by the famous Geneva herbarium discovered by John Briquet more than a century ago, the artist Dominique Arpa-Cirpka decided to create her own algae collection on a dial.
Mingling seabed treasures, natural pigments and gold leaf with real butterfly wings and fish scales, she has composed a unique description of this fascinating scenery that appears to have emerged directly from the blue waters of the Mediterranean. A tribute to the beauty and vulnerability of of seabeds, this one-off creation beats to the rhythm of a movement exclusive to ArtyA and featuring another treasure – this time of a mechanical nature: a flying tourbillon whose rotations at 6 o’clock appear to bring the aquatic dial scene to life.
