"Kamé" or the Turtle ring:
It is a landscape ring inspired by Kyotoite Zen gardens, where turtles are consecrated as archetypal figures.
It is also the turtle from the eponymous novel A Rebours by JK Huysmans where the protagonist decides out of boredom to have his living turtle adorned with precious stones which will end up killing the animal, the ultimate mannerist gesture of a dandy who refers to a certain idea morbid but also living.
It is yet another call to let ourselves be carried away by the silent forces which emanate from the turtles called in Ancient Greece, Cosmophore or the carriers of the world.
