Reliquiario per i dentini da latte di mio figlio David

(Reliquary for the baby teeth of my son David)
Sterling silver, Mokume Gane, lapis lazuli, Boar Tusk, Davidís baby teeth. Cast and fabricated elements. 2002.
Ideation for this object resulted from the innumerable reliquaries I observed in museums and churches throughout my travels in Europe. My wife kept (for some reason) all of our sonís baby teeth and the collision of those two references resulted in this homage to medieval iconography and artifacts, if not, to my son David.
