The Many Faces of Jean Marais

"Life is unfair.  I got nothing but the best."  ~ Jean Marais

I was working my part-time job of furniture hunting on 1st Dibs and accidentally stumbled upon the most magnificent lamps by French actor|writer|painter|sculptor Jean Marais.  Their beauty and originality took my breath away. They would surely be a great addition to our family room.  Then I saw the price.  Uh.....once I win the lottery, these babies are mine!

Jean Marais {1913-1998} was a popular, dashingly handsome actor and longtime love of director Jean Cocteau. He starred in hundreds of movies and television programs from the 1940's through the 1960's but chose to focus his attention mainly on sculpting later in life.  I am crazy for his avant-garde style and enormous talent but I have to also comment on the obvious.  Isn't he just so beautiful?!
