During the medieval Gothic period, depictions of lions were important talismans. A knight wearing a lion’s head on his breastplate or his shield channelled the power and dominance of the King of the Jungle.
Yvan Arpa, CEO of Artya incorporates these elements into his new Lion’s Head Tourbillon timepiece in association with master engraver Bram Ramon. Born in Flanders, Belgium, Ramon is a sculptor and engraver. Last year, ArtyA introduced the Brabant Tourbillon and the Arabesque Tourbillon, and this year Arpa and Ramon are unveiling the Lion’s Head Tourbillon.
Inspired by the Gothic history of the Belgian province of Brabant, and the armed knights of medieval times, Arpa and Ramon have come up with a brand new way of engraving that combines deep chiselling with sculpture, and the result is incredible.
The ArtyA Lion’s Head exudes power, a touch of Gothic spirit, a hint of religion and an artisan’s excellence. Just looking at the Lion’s Head is captivating, as the eye is drawn to the mixture of grooves, crevasses and sculpted figures. And the tourbillon complication at six o’clock finishes off this exceptional, unique piece.
