Behind the scenes at the exhibition: “From nature to jewelry”

How have scientists, naturalist artists and jewelers depicted birds? While some attached importance to lifelike representation, others distanced themselves from it to emphasize shape, color or movement. We travel from drawing to jewelry on the wings of a bird of paradise, between legendary aura and natural beauty.

L’ÉCOLE, School of Jewelry Arts is offering a guided tour of the “Birds in Paradise” exhibition, conducted by exhibition curator Joëlle Garcia, who will then explore the topic in greater depth in a talk focusing on representations of the bird.

Led by Joëlle Garcia, Co-curator of the exhibition, and Curator in charge of the Cultural Diffusion and Mediation Service for the Libraries of the Muséum national d’histoire naturelle.

Behind the scenes at the exhibition: “The symbolism of the bird”

How has the bird’s anatomy, which has evolved from that of certain reptiles over a long period of time, sparked such fascination for man? How has man incorporated the bird into numerous cultures as an element of everyday life (costume, adornment, etc.) and decoration, then in an immaterial form?

L’ÉCOLE, School of Jewelry Arts is offering a guided tour of the “Birds in Paradise” exhibition conducted by Jacques Cuisin, research engineer at the Muséum National d’Histoire Naturelle, who will then explore the topic in greater depth in a talk focusing on the symbolism of the bird.
