“The Golden Child” Faberge Egg by Jon Koon

“The Golden Child” Faberge Egg by Jon Koon

“The Golden Child” Egg: Materials and Execution Details

Two exquisite porcelain vases, historical artifacts from Chairman Mao Zedong’s era, were first acquired. Both antiques were created and hand-painted by the Chairman’s appointed head craftsman and represent one of the mostly culturally significant forms of Chinese art.

The vases were then shattered.

The remains of the demolished vases was then re-fractured to create mosaic pieces with natural break lines and edges, resulting with each piece having its own unique shape and dimensions. In a two month-long process, each complex, puzzle-like piece was inlaid on the egg, which was gilded with 24K German double gold leaf. By matching the edges of irregular cracks and positioning each piece equidistant from each other, gold glimmers through a blueprint of natural crack lines, resulting in a beautiful mosaic pattern. 

The Jon Koon Faberge Egg entitled “The Golden Child” is a mathematical illusion. While the final art piece appears as though the broken tessellations are reassembled, not one of the pieces is in its original position. 

The egg not only reflects the personality of Jon Koon and his aesthetic as an artist, but also shines a light on his culture and history through the use of existing traditional art, which he gives new form and perspective. “The Golden Child” egg embodies a melding of both the past and future, culture and art form.
