RIJKSMUSEUM – ORIGINAL ARTWORK COMMISSION

DEATH, LIFE AND IN BETWEEN


The renowned Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam collaborated with Etsy to find 9 artsists to create an original artwork inspired by the Rijks studio image bank, to promote this new web-based art plateform and inspire other artsists. I’ve been chosen, among 1 million designers on Etsy !

I chose the painting from Melchior d’Hondecoeter  « A Hunter’s Bag on a Terrace », a strong and symbolic painting from the dutch Golden Age and made a tryptique of 3 masks symbolizing death, life and in between, an ode to the sacred Phoenix rising from its ashes.
