Inspired by "The Gates of Hell" by Auguste Rodin In 1880, the French sculptor Auguste Rodin (1885-1917) received a commission for a pair of bronze doors for a new museum in Paris. Rodin worked on the commission for over 30 years, but the museum was never completed and the door was never fully finished. Yet his incredible "The Gates of Hell" was posthumously cast in bronze and became a defining work for the sculptor’s legacy. The sculpture depicts a scene from the Inferno section of Dante’s Divine Comedy and features over 200 figures entangled within an ungrounded representational space. 3" x 2" Large 3D Relief Pin Triple Posted Rubber Clasps.
About the Maker: Pin Museum is owned and operated by two art school sweethearts, now husband and wife in Los Angeles, CA. In addition to Pin Museum, they are designers for national and international brands, former gallerists, parents, and Mexican food devotees. In 2013, they designed and produced their first enamel pin. In 2016, they closed their gallery and launched Pin Museum with three designs by the artists Damien Hirst, Jan van Eyck, and Marcel Duchamp. Featuring work from iconic artists we know and love, as well as designs from acclaimed designers from around the world, Pin Museum strives to create and showcase art and art history-related goods to a broad viewership beyond institutional barriers. Consistently exceeding the expectations of a traditional enamel pin or fashion accessory company, they make products that spawn conversations, showcase unique personalities, and identify unique interests. Henri Matisse once said, “Creativity takes courage.” Pin Museum likes to believe they approach their business courageously.
