The feather motif reproduced by this bracelet is based on the original drawing of the Archangel Gabriel's wing in the Annunciation by Fra Angelico (c. 1426) Madrid, Museo Nacional del Prado. The recovery of the drawing of the Archangel's original wing represents one of the restoration's most important moments due to the prominence of this figure.
This restoration, performed in the workshops of the Museo del Prado, “bears testimony to the value of the work's technical and expressive aspects, the perfection of its technique, the elegance of its shapes, the wealth of its planes and colours, the subtle and vibrating effect emanating from the wings and, of course, the luminosity, which, due to the effect of the gold, gives the painting its own light” as says Gemma García in her article “The restoration of the gilding”, in Fra Angelico. The Annunciation of the Museo del Prado (Serie Uno collection).
The full-size 3D scan of the whole work in ultra high definition served as the starting point for the design of this piece, enabling the faithful depiction of the original drawing of the wings with all its technical mastery.
