Full Gallop !
A horse head with its mouth agape and eyes wide open as if in full stride is the latest example of wearable art by the accomplished and prominent sculptor and art jeweler Christopher Ross. Available in exquisitely crafted 24k matte gold and sterling silver, it is an Objet d’art designed to be worn on a handmade belt of walnut brown Italian calfskin for men or a dazzling blue snakeskin for women. New York native Christopher Ross envisioned a belt as a jewel destined to become an heirloom. Each limited edition numbered piece is sculpted and finished from A-Z by Mr Ross himself; signed and stamped with his signature thumbprint, date and copyright. Notable collectors include The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, Yale Art Gallery and the Boston Museum of Fine Arts among others.
