The Crown of Shame is a single charcoal piece specially created for an international jewellery competition Nature Morte, in 2017.

The piece came along with a statement saying:

The beauty of nature so overwhelming and pure,

is in the hands of kings who cover their eyes

and stand proud when they spread cancer

turning marvelous landscape into

nature morte.

Bussiness magnates of petroleum industry,

you may think you are in power, you may think you are the kings

but let me tell you something-

your crowns are not made out of diamonds.


The piece by international jury was nominated for Grand Prix.
