This brooch or pendant, depending on how you wear it, was created in 1977 by the artist Jean David, who was once a member of the Surrealist group “Unu.” He worked with many artistic mediums like ceramics, painting, collage, and wall hangings, while gaining a reputation as a muralist and poster designer thanks to his colorful, florid aesthetic.
The design of this brooch comes in various styles some silver, or gold, some with no stone, some with turquoise or in this case a red stone. But the design of it truly reflects his modern, surrealist, abstract style of work.
