L’Homme Qui Marche [Walking Man]
L’Homme Qui Marche is a sculpture that has been created by Auguste Rodin.
The walking man has a long history to it for it took many sessions to create this iconic figure. It is said that the L’Homme Qui Marche is composed of a variety of distinguished studies which took place over the formation of other sculptures. Auguste Rodin started off his work over preparatory studies in the year 1877. These studies of Rodin led to the formation of a sculpture called ‘ John the Baptist’ in the year 1880. The modelling of the ‘John the Baptist’ sculpture was done by two Italian men. These two Italian men were Pignatelli and Danielli who posed for the body and head respectively. The stance of the walking man or L’Homme Qui Marche comes from Pignatelli, who had posed keeping both his heels on the floor.
Auguste Rodin, in 1888, succeeded in making up a study on a torso. He had encountered a motif in Michelangelo’s models and drawings. It was then that he conducted this study on the torso. The torso has a rough structure to it and it also a marked and an irregular surface. This torso structure catches any light that falls on it, thereby creating a dynamic effect. The basis of the L’Homme Qui Marche was majorly a decision that was taken by Rodin. This decision followed the combining of the damaged clay version of the torso and the legs of the ‘John the Baptist’. A large plaster version of the L’homme Qui Marche came out in the year 1907 and the bronze cast version came out in 1911. The administrator of Rodin’s estate, that is the Musse Rodin located in Paris, has authorized a total of 12 copies of this sculpture. The price of this sculpture is $104.3 Million.
Taste of Diamonds Champagne
The Taste Of Diamonds Champagne is the lone champagne bottle that is left from the list of the top 10 most expensive champagne bottles. Yet, the Taste of Diamonds continues to be the most expensive champagne bottle, at a price of $2.07 Million dollars. Inside this bottle of champagne lies the delicious blend of Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier, and Grand Cru Chardonnay. This mesmerising blend within the Taste of Diamonds offers a creamy, bubbly, floral and refreshing taste to the drinker. The bottle offers light as well as an elegant finish as said by the champagne maker. The dreamy taste offered by the Taste of Diamonds is something that cannot be shared by anyone at all. Coming to the price aspect of this champagne after it’s heavenly flavours, the logo of the Taste of Diamonds is carved out of 18-carat solid gold. The design is carved out in a superman style and is the signature logo of the Taste of Diamonds. Not just this, in the centre of the logo we have an encrusted diamond. This deep cut, flawless and crystal white clear diamond weighs 19 carats. The prominent diamond has managed to replace the Swarovski diamond that originally used to be placed there.
What adds further to it’s worth is the person who created this magnificent piece. He is none other than Alexander Amosu, the producer of a huge number of iPhones and BlackBerrys. The jewels have been affixed on the bottle by hand. Only people born with a substantial fortune can afford to ever own the precious Taste of Diamonds. The creation of the champagne goes through a long procedure in order to ensure the best quality champagne. The process of its formation starts right from the choosing of grapes to storing them, ageing them, pressing them, extracting and making champagne and then storing it in cool compartments. The process of the formation of this champagne is kept under close surveillance to prevent any mishaps. An interesting fact is that if the opulence of the bottle can be replaced with a simple bottle without the gold and diamond logo, this bottle will cost only $211!!
