Homage to Courbet-Silver-backed Indonesian coral brooch

A curious coral I found on the shores of Siladen Island, Sulawesi, Indonesia. The beaches on this flyspeck island were littered with unbelievably giant, intact seashells. Of course, its natural pattern reminded me of Gustav Courbet’s “Origin of the Universe.” 2x1-1/4”. Coral, silver, stainless steel pin back. SOLD
