Oil on canvas

Carstian Luyckx was a 17th century Flemish artist. In this painting, Luyckx carefully arranges playing cards, red coral shells, a jewelry box and a stone sculpture into a harmonious and intriguing composition. Each element shows his attention to detail and his ability to capture the intricate textures and nuances of objects.
The playing cards lend an element of mystery and playfulness to the still life. Their presence hints at the idea of games and chance, adding a layer of symbolism to the arrangement. The red coral and shells evoke the natural world, their vibrant colors and delicate forms contrasting with the man made objects in the composition.
Luyckx’s handling of light and shadow brings the objects to life, creating a sense of volume and depth in the painting.
