One of the latest designs from Fornasetti’s ‘Themes and Variations’ collection, Lina Cavalieri is seen adorning a star around her right eye. On one side of the candle she looks modest with a simple star, but as you flip the candle you are faced with a bold version of Lina. Two versions of the same woman.
Mediterranean herbs that were found in and around the family home, woods often utilized in interior designs or pieces of furniture created by Fornasetti. Other more ethereal ingredients - such as incense - conjure a latent spirituality or sense of dreamscape that is often present in Fornasetti graphic poetry.
