 鑽石金鋼犀牛x 施華洛世奇  
一場頂級水晶與藝術相激盪的視覺饗宴

時尚水晶設計品牌施華洛世奇,10月30日至11月 15日將在台灣推出施華洛世奇120周年特展,此次特展特別邀請到台灣知名藝術家施力仁先生,以「傳世經典,創新思維(Heritage and Innovation)」為理念跨界打造出《鑽石金鋼犀牛》─藝術雕塑精品,特展焦點見證不朽絢麗光芒。

雕琢出極致燦耀光采

在遠古,犀牛被視為勇敢、權力、地位和尊貴的象徵,犀牛角更有「唯我獨尊」之意;鑽石於古希臘時期象徵著不可征服、堅硬璀璨,充滿了神秘、傳奇的色彩,價值居臨各類寶石的鑽石,和犀牛的寓意不謀而合。一顆鑽石原石,透過精密的切工、不同的切割比例,折射出的絢麗光芒,深深影響鑽石的價值;《鑽石金鋼犀牛》外型採用幾何切割及硬邊造型的雕塑語言等極致工藝,表面鑲嵌各色水晶的《鑽石金鋼犀牛》正精彩綻放其第二藝術生命。

呼籲生態保護

遠古至今已然演化生存五千萬年的神獸-犀牛,姿態勇猛而穩重,眼神中強烈的動物靈性,更添整體的神祕性,卻因為珍貴的犀牛角,遭到人類殘酷的迫害,如今瀕臨絕種,其稀有性、珍貴性可謂與鑽石並駕齊驅。藝術家施力仁懷抱著對藝術的熱情及對自然保育的重視,特別與施華洛世奇合作共創《鑽石金鋼犀牛》,不僅傳達對生態之重視,創作風格更與時俱進地結合時尚設計元素,成就古今經典,永恆不朽。

In the past, rhinos were usually seen as a symbol of bravery, power, status and dignity. During ancient Greek period, the diamond had similar meaning of unconquerableness. Those mysterious stones is full of legendary colors, and its implication perfectly matches with that of the rhino. An adamas will eventually become an invaluable diamond after being delicately polished and incised, multiplying various lights and largely improving the value of its raw material. “Diamond  King Kong Rhino” adapts geometric cutting, rigid shaping as well as other stylistic sculptural languages which gives it a wonderful bloom and a second chance of art life.

Evolved since ancient times for about fifty million years——rhinos are fierce and steady. One could see their strong spirit through their eyes, making them more unknown and mystique. Nevertheless, because they have a keen horns which look special and precious, they have been persecuted by voracious human and have become an endangered species. Wild rhinos disappeared in China completely; few of them remain alive in Africa and Europe. Its rarity keeps pace with priceless diamond. Artist Li-Jen carries a passion for art and emphasizes conservation of nature and animals. Li-Jen worked with Swarovski and created “Diamond  King Kong Rhino”. He wishes to convey not only his focus on ecosystem, but also to catch up with fashion trend and incorporate unique elements, making his work an eternal classics within the art world.
