Paul Beckrich wished to create a feminine character for this sculpture, and so designed this Chinese woman with a determined temperament, combining grace, beauty and intelligence. This character is the most illustrious Empress of the Tang dynasty: Wu Zetian. She called herself Zhao during her reign. Zhao signifies light of the sun and the moon, illuminating all four corners of the Earth. the transparency and brightness of Daum's crystal paste brings Zhao back to life. Her buttons, necklace, and earrings in gilded pewter and the detailed and refined motifs on her coat accentuate her majestic appearance.

Daum, the legendary glassmaker master, has kept alive for more than a century a love relationship with the greatest artists of its time, giving their work of art a second life of crystal and colours. From the Ecole de Nancy, from Art Nouveau to Art Decoratif, from Majorelle to Dali, Arman and Hilton McConnico, Daum has not missed any of the magic rendez-vous of the artistic creation and modern savoir-faire, which has always renewed the alliance of art and art craft.

Few brands have worked with as many artists: for nearly 140 years, more than 350 exceptional signatures have constituted a heritage beyond compare, a unique collection.

How to convey those works into crystal sculptures? This is where Daum's secret lies, shaper of the exception, highly knowledgeable workshop, laboratory of wonders, designer of incomparable objects. All of the Daum pieces are lovingly hand produced in France, using traditional lost wax sculpting technique.
