Byzantine Heads: Brunette (1897)

The pendants that form part of this tiara herald Mucha's later jewellery designs. A similar design can be seen in Mucha's Zodiac panel of the previous year.

It was on the basis of these highly detailed designs that Parisian jeweller Georges Fouquet decided to enlist the help of Mucha for his collection for the 1900 Exposition Universelle.
