Between the jeweler and the painter there was immediately entente. They both loved the mythology and, in fact, the five pieces include the brooch Medusa, Apollo and Daphne, but also the San Sebastian and the Fallen Angel. The jewelry also resound themes, symbols and icons that are present in the works of Salvador Dali. For example, two earrings similar to a metaphysical object located in a work of the painter, or the snakes that have the same style as those portrayed in the surrealist paintings. Rudy Serra
