As part of an ongoing collaboration with the Robert Mapplethorpe Foundation, Paris jewelry house Repossi has created a collection of fine jewelry inspired by the artist’s own handmade jewelry and his early photography.

This ring is an interpretation of Robert Mapplethorpe’s 1982 photograph of the pioneering American bodybuilder Lisa Lyon. Its wrapped shape mimics the American flag draped along Lyon’s gracefully extended arm in the black-and-white image. Yellow and black gold are used to create the stripes of the flag, and fifteen stars are each placed in relief.

The Gagosian Shop is the exclusive retail partner for sixteen pieces of the Repossi/Robert Mapplethorpe collection during the month of May 2022.
