One of my favorite gem stories is about this ruby. It’s called Ruby Kusturd. It’s 30, 090 carats and was artistically rendered by Mark Mothersbaugh, who found it through a gemologist friend.
Tumblr media
“The two discussed how the types of people who usually buy these absurdly large gems have often acquired their money by rather sinister means—they are members of drug cartels, Russian oil executives, mobsters. Mothersbaugh decided that he’d like to carve the ruby. Specifically, he’d like to carve the ruby into the shape of a turd… “So whoever owns the world’s largest ruby, [has] to buy a turd to get it.” To disguise the turd as a scoop of ice cream, Mothersbaugh placed the ruby into a beautiful, highly polished bronze cone.”
I cannot tell you how much this pleases me as a jeweler, having seen who buys the big rocks I’ve had to work on.

Maureen Bisilliat, Pele Preta (”Black Skin”), 1965. Created around 50 years ago, “Pele Preta” (english translation: “black skin”) was the first photographic essay by the English-Brazilian artist Maureen Bisilliat, who until then was a painter. The test resulted in an exhibition at MAM-SP in 1966, a time when photographing nude black models was still a rarity. This work marks the transition of his research with the human body to a new phase and the decision to abandon painting. The essay book, published in limited edition by IMS in 2010, received the Benny Award for Graphic Excellence, the most important in the field. (This passage was translated to English so translation may not be perfect.)

Ana Mendieta - “Silueta” Series
The “Siluetas” comprise more than 200 earth-body works that saw the artist burn, carve, and mold her silhouette into the landscapes of Iowa and Mexico. The sculptures made tangible Mendieta’s belief of the earth as goddess, rooted in Afro-Cuban Santería and the indigenous Taíno practices of her homeland.
“It is a way of reclaiming my roots and becoming one with nature.”
