The Surreal Lion Earrings by Alighieri are handcrafted from 24ct gold plated bronze, in Hatton Garden, London.
Each earring is different, resembling the tails of a lion.
In the selva oscura -dark wood- Dante is confronted by a terrifying lion. His head held high, with a furious hunger, it seems as though the very air is trembling in fear of the wild beast.
This encounter comes close to forcing Dante to turn away from the perilous journey. It is at this point that Virgil, his guide, appears to offer him counsel and companionship.
The Surreal Lion Earrings remind us to look ask for guidance and support when faced with fear.
