The Scream by Edvard Munch and the famous Andy Warhol Campbell soup reproduced with thousands of diamond by Sunjewels.
In the world jewelry occasionally it happens to find the special pieces. Sometimes these extraordinary jewels are genuine masterpieces, small works of art from the imagination and skill of designers and goldsmiths. A case apart, however, is that shown by the Indian group Sunjewels at Baselworld 2017. It is the reproduction of two famous paintings: The Scream by the Norwegian Edvard Munch, made between 1893 and 1910, and the Campbell Soup by Andy Warhol’s 1962 and icon of pop art. To testify the technical skill in the processing of gold and gems, Sunjewels has recreated the two pictures with gold and small diamonds. To play the Munch painting have been used about 14,000 hand-set stones, with a work of 10-12 weeks from a 3D CAD file. The Warhol painting, instead, uses 5100 diamonds of different colors.
Sunjewels is a company based in Mumbai, India, who created (at avril 2017) 2,715,475 jewels. The company works primarily for third parties, through the work of 1,047 employees.
