Kenyan artisans capture the ethereal texture of orchid petals in hand-cut, 24k gold-plated brass with a recycled horn jewel at the center. A freshwater pearl drop adds a delicate sense of movement.
This jewelry item comes packaged in a white box (pictured).
The National Museum of African Art began as a private educational institution in 1964 to promote cross-cultural understanding in the social sciences and arts. Founded by Warren M. Robbins, it was known as the Museum of African Art and located on Capitol Hill in a townhouse that had been the home of Frederick Douglass, the African American abolitionist and statesman. In 1979 the museum became part of the Smithsonian Institution, the world's largest museum and research complex dedicated to the increase and diffusion of knowledge.
