Today Beadsaholic brings exciting news of a new release by Lundd Denmark The SCREAM!
I am excited to introduce the first addition to the Lundd Denmark “Art Line” a new concept interpreting old masterpieces as well as contemporary art. First to be released in the collection is ” The SCREAM” an interpretation of Edward Munch’s famous painting. With this line Lundd’s idea is to capture both the motif and depict the story behind the original artwork. Which is a cool new concept on design.
“The Scream” – An interpretation of Edward Munch’s famous painting. It is generally accepted that the narrative behind it is his mentally disordered daughter, placed in asylum on an island in the Norwegian archipelago. The person in focus could be Munch himself leaving the asylum, or it could be the daughter running away from it.” ~ Lundd Denmark
For more information on the Edward Munch painting The Scream you can visit Nasjonalmuseet The National Museum website where the painting resides and Legomenon website for their meaning of The Scream an Art Analysis.
Here you see both sides of the hand-made pouch which is made with hand-dyed felt from Denmark. Each bead comes in this pouch and is accompanied by the beautiful informational leaflet. The Hand-made pouch is part of the introductory packaging as the original masterpiece by Edward Munch was created in 1893 the first ninety-three (93) beads will come with this special pouch, once sold out the re-stock will be just the bead in normal packaging.
Lundd Denmark The SCREAM captures the face of the person in the painting and Lundd has used the back to show the enamel scenery on the bridge. So, you see the complete story or painting within both sides of the bead. This bead measures approximately 14 mm high x 14 mm wide and weighs 4.3 grams. The Scream retails for DKK 378 / €51 / $47.99 (Vat Free)
Here are more angles of the bead on a Lundd leather bracelet in the next two photos showing the back and front. I find that the bead fits nicely on any bracelet and rarely flips; however, if it did flip both sides are artfully done. This bead is universal and will fit most branded bracelets.
I have looked through my beads to find the perfect color combination to frame this bead to look as much like the painting as I could, therefore I went with True Beadz Hygge, True Beads Bridge, Trollbeads Wishful Sky, Trollbeads Northern Lights Magic on a Trollbeads Twisted Bangle with Redbalifrog Bubble Stoppers. I think or hope this has created a scene that depicts the painting.
Here with the leaflet and a lovely book of Edward Munch Artwork.
Here in Mississippi there is an Art Garden and I always love this wall as it reminds me of the painting, so I wanted to be sure to get a few photos of this bracelet by the wall.
I have included photos at different angles.
On the Lundd Leather bracelet I used the black silicone o-rings as I find that they allow for the bead to stand out and they tend to blend in with the black leather. Stoppers do fit the bracelet, but I happen to like wearing them this way. When wearing the bead face up you don’t really see the o-rings as they hide behind the arms as you will see in some wrist shots.
Here you can see the black silicone rings don’t really show when wearing them with The Scream on the black leather. I really like how the Scream bead stands out.
Here you can see The Scream on the leather with silver stoppers. I’ve worn it both ways, but I think on leather I like using the black o-rings.
I’m also including a video that shows an up-close look at the bead, leaflet and pouch.
Here are a couple of photos from Lundd Denmark, including stock photos.
Please note, that the enamel colors vary from bead to bead as each is hand-made.
Over all, I think this is a fantastic bead and love the idea of an art line. I’m excited to see what Lundd has in store for this line of beads. The Scream is one of my favorite painting, so as you can imagine I was very excited to see this bead.
Please note that this bead is available on Lundd Denmark website, Perlen or if you are lucky enough to visit Nasjonalmuseet The National Museum in Norway you can pick this bead up while at the museum.
