Lips Like Sugar Lip#1 convertible necklace from Under The Killing Moon series
emiko-o one-of-a-kind convertible Lip necklace and wall sculpture, "Lips Like Sugar" from the Under The Killing Moon series. Wear the lips around your neck to be in the “throes of passion”, then put them on the wall to admire, reminisce and reflect.
Made from repurposed LEGO®, Argentium silver, rare earth magnets. Neck cord strung with coated steel wire and attaches to lip with rare earth magnets or can be worn on its own without the lips. Includes custom LEGO® wall mount and screws so you can proudly hang the lips on the wall when not wearing them.
emiko explores this new series of work, inspired by Salvador Dali and Luis Bunuel's Surrealist imagery, New Wave/Post Punk music, Hedwig and the Angry Inch, and high fashion photo stories. Upon close inspection the lips appear Neo-Impressionistic and abstract, but when viewed from afar the image clarifies – much like love in its first stages where true perspective is gained only with distance from it.
5"L x 3 1/8"W x 1 1/8"D. Necklace: 21"L x .188” Diameter
