Treny (The Laments), a rosary made out of a copy of Jan Kochanowski's, Treny, a collection of 19 poems written in 1579 in memory of his daughter, Urszula, who died aged 30 months.

Unique, , 74 x 45 x 1.5 cm


Elisa writes: Treny (The Laments), 2016
Kochanowski's Laments are his masterpiece. Today they appeal less because of their formal perfection, but because of their humanity. Kochanowski's grief and despair, his love for his child have not lost their power and touch our hearts. The poems were required reading in primary school and I still know Lament VIII by heart.
