Headrest for Madame Butterfly

The Headrest for Madame Butterfly was originally designed by Robert Wilson and appeared on the stage of Wilson’s Madame Butterfly premiering on November 19, 1993, at the Paris National Opera. Wilson’s sculpture took inspiration from southern African headrests traditionally associated with dreaming and divination. Wilson realised this work in a sculptural edition of 3 for public exhibition.
