Pendants.. the early years
These vintage works from the collection were created by LoU's own hands during the late 70's and in his studio at the iconic La MaMa Experimental Theatre Club during the the early 1980's and 90's in NYC. Gathering all these various components throughout his world travels... LoU described these works as possessing a 'kind of magic ... that is transferred from creation to owner and then into the owner's world'... in his words they are "Good For Your Life" these pendants are "Truthful at Heart"
In this piece from the early 80's, LoU had already been adding beautiful symbols of spirit into his works. This is a very old hand carved buddha from his travels to India. Set in a cast bronze element that has a beautiful shard of jade attached. Strung on a chestnut colored natural dyed and hand braided cord that is adjustable with a small brass bead. A rare treasure.
