Earl Pardon, Box Ring, ca. 1960, amethyst, silver, ivory, ebony, Smithsonian American Art Museum, Museum purchase through the Renwick Acquisitions Fund, 2003.20
To create Box Ring and related pieces, Earl Pardon borrowed from the visual properties and spiritual force of African tribal art. This influence can be traced not only in the colors and forms designed into the piece, but also in his mix of precious jewels with other natural materials such as ebony and ivory.
