Saints Pop Icons – Miniature
These eye-popping miniature Icons by Italian designers Santhonoré offer an interesting (and sometimes tongue in cheek) take on saintly powers. While the designs do actually draw inspiration from Christian tradition and do acknowledge each saint’s iconographic traits – they’ve been reimagined as latter day Pop Icons.
The current Saints Collection features only female figures faces, enhancing the delicate lines of their visages through the use of bright, yet (sort of!) subtly feminine colours. Each drawing captures an extraordinary richness of detail – in the garments and in the background blaze of colour, to pay homage to long-invoked figures such as Saint Agata, Saint Veronica or Santa Carolina. These beautifully designed icons are set to become collectibles – for for true believers and art & design aficionado alike.
The Saint Pop Icons are easy to hang on the wall with a simple nail or screw. Each has its ‘Protective Qualities’ displayed on the back, in English and Italian.
