I wrote about this briefly earlier in my blog but wanted to include a full picture of the front and back.
I went to the Pineda exhibit at UCLA earlier this year hoping to see another one like this but there was nothing similar. Pineda’s bracelets tend to be almost mechanical looking in design, with interlocking pieces that move like machinery, so to me, this is a departure for him and I haven’t seen anything that looks like it. I would guess that it’s late 50s but don’t know for certain.
I’ve included a picture of both the front and back so you can see how it truly does look like a wing. It has to be worn carefully to keep the three and half inches that juts out from the wrist from knocking into things and being potentially damaged.
