Here is the third design – the result of collaboration of Lalique and McLaren. Both leaders in their fields, with passion and dedication at their heart, Lalique and McLaren introduces Sailfish sculpture in satin-finished crystal, part of the Essence of Speed collection. It is a spectacular larger piece created using the lost-wax technique in an edition of 20 to commemorate the 20 Formula One World Championships that McLaren has won so far.
With dimension of H 20″ x L 17.85″ x W 9.21″ (H 48.7 cm x L 55.5 cm x W 17.6 cm), Sailfish weighs 36.82 lbs (16.7 kg) and is hand-crafted by master craftsmen in France. It comes with a certificate of authenticity mentioning its number.
McLaren possesses an outstanding racing pedigree and, over the years, has honed its expertise and pursued a relentless quest for speed in its cars, which are renowned for their engineering art. René Lalique was also inspired by the other natural forms of “Flore, Faune et Femme” (flora, fauna and the feminine) and his iconic car mascots reflecting all three were some of his best-known pieces created in the 1920s and 1930s.
