Description - Dangerous Arts by Karen Watts
From the earliest times, the finest craftsmen in the world created beautiful objects for their wealthiest patrons. Worn by kings and coveted by emperors, these items not only revealed the owners' power but also their standing as great connoisseurs of the arts. Dangerous Arts portrays a world that combines art with conflict, death with beauty. Replete with gorgeous photography, it showcases works of art that adorned the great palaces of the world. These are objects made to kill but also to impress: a magnificent testament to craftsmanship, engineering and high fashion.
