Story

In adoration of Auguste Rodin’s acclaimed sculpture “The Kiss”, this hand- crafted wide and heavy 18k yellow gold band is emblazoned with a high relief image of a reclining male and female couple locked within the embrace of a passionate kiss. Upon a textured surface, the hand of the male cups the female’s head as her hand caresses his cheek. Although somewhat primitive in its rendering, the portrayal is relatively representational.

Incised images of a crescent moon and a stylized sun represent the universal symbols of the feminine and the masculine. Signed below the legs of the female is possibly “W. Diaq ‘65” or something similar and several illegible marks, seemingly “Rodin” in recognition of the pre-eminent Realist sculptor.
