The Friar (Il Frate) Incense Burner
Il Frate, the Friar, is the confidant, the symbol of generosity. An attentive listener, the Friar is an expert in the alchemy of the human soul. He always knows how to help. The porcelain plate depicts a face which recalls his cloak, with the street art decoration referring to ingredients used by friars to create perfumes in the Renaissance period.
These creations designed by Luca Nichetto are timeless, scented works of art. Ginori brings back to life the most exciting characters of the court of Caterina ‘de Medici in the creation of the LCDC collection – a home fragrance collection of hand-made porcelain decorative scenting totems. The statuesque faces of the characters become the archetypal protagonists of the LCDC collection, thanks to a modern reinterpretation, inspired by, Jean-Paul Gouse’s illustrations and graffiti and Lucha Libre’s masks.
Ensure you are one of the lucky few to secure one of these incredible decorative objects, whether as a gift or a piece to treasure yourself, there is no doubt it will be an item of interest and conversation.
Boredom is not welcome at home.
