Carol Summers

Sun and Heart (Belt Buckle), 1978
2.75 x 2.75 in
SKU: 6291d
This belt buckle is a rare and unusual example from the oeuvre of Carol Summers as he is mostly known for his woodcut prints. Nonetheless, the buckle uses the same abstract stylization and motifs seen in the rest of his body of work, namely the central heart and the curling flares bursting from the heart's center. The same design appears in a silkscreen poster Summers designed in 1980 for the San Francisco Symphony where the heart functions as the sun shining over a rainbow and landscape. 2.75 x 2.75 inches Signature of Carol Summers on reverse Embossed en verso "Solid Brass," "Made in U.S.A." and "© 1978"
