The Curator — Regular price £155.00

This collection is a treasure trove of armour: little emblems of protection, in the form of sculptural hands and Sicilian bleeding hearts, along with gilded chain vests, belts with small tools clipped on, and of course, glass vessels, to fill with adventures to come.” - Rosh Mahtani

E po che la sua mano a la mia puose
con lieto volto, ond’ io mi confrtai,
mi mise dentro a le segrete cose.

And after he had put his hand on mine
with a reassuring look that gave me comfort,
he led me towards things unknown.

Inferno, canto i

The symbol of the hand has long represented comfort and protection across cultures. In the third canto of the Inferno, Dante’s guide, Virgil, places his hand his hand on the poet, for comfort. Virgil is Dante’s curator: the Curator Amulet is an emblem of protection, a talisman to be clipped onto a necklace or belt, to safeguard you on your adventures.
