Inspired by Diego Rivera’s Detroit Industry murals, this hand-painted ornament is a one-of-a-kind memento based on the North Wall of the famed frescoes at the Detroit Institute of Arts. Rivera completed the twenty-seven panel work in eleven months, from April 1932 to March 1933. The fresco cycle is considered the finest example of Mexican mural art in the United States, and the artist thought it the best of his career. Rivera’s Detroit Industry murals depict industry and technology as the indigenous culture of Detroit.
Each ornament is hand-painted on the inside of the glass; each one a unique result of the artist’s hand.
Dimensions: 4 inch diameter
The ornaments we ordered were beautiful and great quality. They also come in a very pretty black lined gift box.
