Nov - In Appreciation of The Kiss
Posted on December 11 2019
Austrian artist Gustav Klimt is known for his ethereal, pattern-rich portraits. Today, several of these canvases are considered masterpieces, though The Kiss, a particularly exquisite piece, seems to float above the rest. Featuring shimmering gold tones, stylized forms, and sentimental iconography, The Kiss has enchanted audiences since its completion in 1908. Today, the awe-inspiring piece is housed in Vienna’s esteemed Österreichische Galerie Belvedere, though its illustrious legacy transcends Klimt’s Austrian roots.The Kiss, which was painted during his luminous “Golden Period.” offers a quiet glimpse into an intimate relationship.
An embracing couple kneeling in a grassy patch of wildflowers. Clad in a geometrically-printed robe and with a crown of vines on his head, the man cradles the woman’s face as he leans in to kiss her. The female figure—whose colorful, primitively patterned dress contrasts her partner’s garment—wears flowers in her hair. As she wraps her arms around her partner’s neck, her eyes are peacefully closed, emphasizing the tranquility and intimacy of the scene. We used this iconic masterpiece as inspiration for this Heart + Honey box!
The Kiss Handpainted Flat Candle- Hand-painted by artisans in Lithuania, these candles stand out in their simplicity. The flat design is a unique approach to candles that has a minimalist, eye-catching feel. The twin wicks burn evenly and self-extinguish as they near the steel base, without any dripping wax or smoke
The Gilded Kiss Pendant- Moonstone and chalcedony harken the organic pattern on the gown of the immortal woman in Klimt's painting. Gold plated and strung on a delicate chain, this pendant is an exquisite complement to day or evening wear.
Kiss Toy- The Evelyn model g-spot wand is a fantastic addition to anyone's collection. Graceful and quiet, it features 10 vibration modes and a choice of smooth or textured surface.USB magnetic charging cord, and waterproof!
Its a 2 toy box, and we finished off with the decadent Frosted Fleur Bullet Vibrator by Rocks Off! Oversized at 120mm, and gilded like Klimt's portrait - this little number can be used in conjunction with the Kiss Toy, or solo as its own star of the show - don't forget your bullet during couple's play - always a welcome addition!!
