The edition piece consists a book, and a box with a butterfly brooch, all together in a white cardboard cassette.

The boxes/butterflies are signed and numbered. ”Collecting Butterflies” is an ongoing project and has been on show in several international museums and galleries.
Ralph Bakker presented in 2011 a limited Art Edition of his monography of 20 years of work on the occasion of a retrospective exhibition. Works from 1989 up to 2011, all his career compressed in 143 pages. An entire life dedicated to create beauty in the form of jewels. This book/box is signed by the artist, numbered 34/45 and the piece is the 13/15 of the white agathe gem.
(...) The catalog features work represented by 30 international galleries. The pieces by 53 artists featured in Geography reflect the global nature of the contemporary jewelry field and the different ways jewelers react to their environment. (...)Reworthit!
