New Patriot Egg

2002 - Theo Fabergé

New Patriot Egg

Price: £0.00

 

Theo Fabergé’s New Patriot Egg celebrates a City and Nation, which triumph over the adversity of September 11, 2001.

 

The New Patriot Egg stands on a base of nero portero Carrera marble. Hand wrought and bronze, the pentagon and pedestal unite the new heroes of Ground Zero – the policeman, a construction worker, the New York fireman, an armed Special Forces combatant, and an Emergency Medical Services operative. Above them, one of the two cityscapes of New York poignantly omits the Twin Towers.

 

From the city, the flames of the World Trade Centre are hand raised and chased in 18 carat yellow gold and in red gold. The yellow gold Egg above, is hand engraved with the 50 stars of the United States; and the Eagle of Justice is sculpted in multi-coloured, solid gold, its eyes brilliant rubies.

 

Open the Egg and Ground Zero is portrayed, its wreckage relieved by a pristine American flag, hand-engraved and bright polished - all in 18 carat white gold. Theo’s final surprise is the hand-carved model of the Tomb of the Unknowns, sculpted in statuary marble.

 

Theo Fabergé depicts Americans of the 21st Century, willing to pay the ultimate price to preserve the freedom of the nation and their fellow-citizens. This remarkable objet d’art commemorates the world’s tribute to our New Patriots.
