Inspiration ~ From Famous Painting to Modern Furniture


I guess glass artists aren't the only ones who look to famous paintings for inspiration.

This is a chair which was inspired by Rene Francois- Ghislain Magritte's "Son of Man" painting, (below), was designed by Chilean architect, Roberto Sebastian Matta.

I love both the painting and the chair and now want to do a bead that relates to this painting too.  It's just a question of what elements from the painting do I want to use?  Should it be sculptural or not and what do I want to change?

This will be on my list for "when I've got some spare studio time" later this week.  I'll show you when it's done.  

What do you think?
