La scafa

Rarely have art and craft been as closely intertwined as in our 2007, our piece ‘La Scafa’. Closely inspired by the work of landscape painter Jacob Philipp Hackert, the virtuosity on display in capturing a painting in gold and the typical animal of the Sele Valley on the front of the piece is balanced by the playfulness of the reverse side of the piece, where a winking sun hovers above a cornucopia of animals while Apollo, according to the roman legend, is raising a new day with his charioteer.


La Scafa was featured at the Reggia di Caserta exhibition which marked the 200 year anniversary of Hackert’s death
