The ornament you are looking at is a natural shell entirely engraved by hand by one of the most famous cameo engravers of Torre del Greco in Naples: Master Giovanni Ventresca.

On it stands out clearly the patron saint of Genoa, Saint George, in the iconic act of fighting the dragon. The eternal battle between the leader, who represents good, and the beast, symbol of evil, is the exact reproduction of a stone portal located in front of the Abbey of San Matteo in the alleys of the city.

The particularity of the shell was also exploited in the creation, and therefore its link with the sea, by placing it on a precious brass support depicting 3 sea creatures. Inside there is a light bulb: this allows the ornament to also be used as a lamp, and to diffuse a pleasant soft and suffused light in the room during the night.

Material: natural shell.
Support: brass.
