Design by Raf Reyes: Raf (VERYRARE’s founder – whose official/government name is Raphael btw) personal favorite. Channeling the power of Cabanel’s artwork he loves so much; thinking about the painting, it’s just so powerful. The quiet fury and resentment in the ‘fallen angel’’s eyes, the single tear for his loss, hands clasped together in an effort to control these intense emotions boiling inside while being scorned by the angelic cohort above… This V®️R®® statement piece draws parallels with our era and ourselves (as protagonists) – barely containing our Anger in the aftermath of critical times’ events; when we think everything’s doomed (hence the ‘Lost Paradise’ alternative title) when, in reality, it’s not. The metallic blue drip stands for the angels’ blood poured from uptop (heard it was blue-colored), the exlibris woven is for the personal connection between You and the Piece, nd the butterflies (at the back) are symbols for hope & new beginnings, an emblem of the brand.
