Rhine­stone rock ’n’ roll

The Irish Times - Thursday - Property - - Interiors -

It’s a lit­tle bit coun­try and a lit­tle bit rock ‘n’ roll with tooled leather, blan­kets, fring­ing, bare wood and desert-dried ephemera. Skulls are em­bel­lished with beads, crys­tals, gold leaf and mir­rors, the kind that were tra­di­tion­ally part of ri­tual ex­changes for na­tive Amer­i­cans and as such were val­ued more for the sym­bolic as­so­ci­a­tions of their form, ma­te­rial and color than for their ‘worth’ in raw com­mod­ity ex­change.

The tro­phy wall makes a hero’s re­turn with this em­bel­lished deer skull, about ¤1,401 from Rock­ett St Ge­orge, which will bring a dark gothic glam­our to any would-be ranch house. rock­ettst­ge­orge.co.uk
