The Scarab

Designer: Matteo Giuseppe Pani
Project Type: Produced, Commercial Work
Client: Onassis Cultural Centre of Athens
Location: Athens, Greece
Packaging Contents: A scarab
Packaging Materials: Paper and cardboard

In late 2014, The Onassis Cultural Centre, a design contemporary museum in Athens, has commissioned me and other prominent artists/designer to create a work of art. I have been contacted by Double Decker (an English curating agency) who has sent me the media I would have had to use to create the work. I decided to cut by hand 45 layers of the book they sent me, to create a Scarab. The scarab is a antique religious symbol in the Egyptian and Mediterranean culture. It is a symbol of regeneration and creation. I have dedicated this positive symbol to Greece, which is still facing a financial crisis.

What's Unique?
It's the only peace available. It is going to be part of the permanent exhibition of the Museum.

I only had one chance to cut the book, I could not commit any mistakes considering that It was the only copy available.
