Gustav Klimt The Kiss Hair Clips. Unique art jewelry hair clip made from famous oil painting “The Kiss” with french barrette backing riveted onto back of copper hair clips. Klimt used fine art materials, particularly gold and silver leaf to highlight the sacred nature of human relationships and the bond between sensual lovers, a key theme underlining much of Art Nouveau.

Gustav Klimt The Kiss Hair Clip made by hand from copper by the skilled artisans of Copper Reflections. Klimt had left the identity of the figures as ambiguous intentionally, allowing the work to embody a universal, timeless vision of romantic love. The Kiss embodies a range of artistic styles in a remarkably harmonious way. The use of gold leaf is traced back to the artist’s affinity for Byzantine art, which inspired the entire “Golden Period”, while the spiral patterns in the clothes recall Bronze Age art.
