De fait cette tête de Méduse date de 1899, et provient d’un projet de groupe monumental intitulé Persée et Méduse dont vous trouverez une reproduction d’atelier ci-jointe. Le groupe a été
détruit dans un accident du camion qui le transportait au retour d’une exposition. Seule la tête a
été reproduite, mais j’ignore le nombre de tirage fait par la fonderie Luppens. (Courrier reçu le

EXCEPTIONAL AND RARE RELIGIOUS ALTARPIECE, CIRCA 1902-1910

EXCEPTIONAL AND RARE RELIGIOUS ALTARPIECE, CIRCA 1902-1910
Koloman Moser (attributed to).

Featuring a temple with the Christ on the cross and two angels in marquetry of macassar ebony,
incrustation of mother-of-pearl, copper and ivory
The lower part is represented by a pattern design of cubes in marquetry
Inscribed IHS (iota-eta-sigma) or (Iesus Hominum Salvator)
55 cm. high
36 cm. wide
25.5 cm. deep

Probably executed by Koloman Moser for one of the many churches designed and built by himself
between 1902 and 1910. We can unmistakably combine the design and technique of marquetry
which combines the inlaying of ivory, copper, mother-of-pearl and exotic wood with the secretary
made in 1902 by Koloman Moser at Charlottenlund Castle near Stockholm
The stylization of the letters IHS corresponds to the work and research on the lettering and
words that occupied Koloman Moser throughout his career
