WEAPONRY ART BY JOHANN FANZOJ: THE PRIVILEGE TO CREATE ITEMS FOR POSTERITY

Weapons inhabit a unique place in the fascinating world of rare collectibles. Throughout human history, arms and armor have inspired awe and fascination alike, and have been the most important side companions of men and women over the millenniums. More than any other tool or technology, and for the longest period of time, weapons have been witnesses of pride, courage, distinction and social rank of the people who have commissioned and owned them.

That is why artistically decorated weapons can have highly symbolic meanings and served not only as everyday objects, but also as diplomatic gifts or even a demonstration of local craftsmen’s skills.

THE ART OF THE GUN – CRAFTSMANSHIP TO PERFECTION

Company Johann Fanzoj has taken the idea of Guns & Art to a new dimension. Never before, artistic projects on hunting weapons have been conceptionally reasoned so extensively and carried through so meticulously to the smallest detail.
The firm masterfully understands to focus world-class artisanal resources, technical minds and artists to create exceptional mechanical masterpieces and use those as a canvas for capturing stories about life and death, passion, hunting, nature, themes which appear unmasked as in no other metier.
In many hundreds, often thousands of hours extraordinary works are envisioned and brought to life, objects of culture and value, masterpieces in the true sense: the Best creative minds and skilled hands can do in their time.

D r a c o n  is an opulent ride into the mystical world of dragons, rulers over the elemental forces (Fire, Water, Earth, Air); powerful protectors and challengers alike on man´s legendary Search for the Dragon´s pearl.
The philosophical journey leads to the knowledge of what treasure the dragon  r e a l l y  guards. 🙂

The DRACON project is accompanied by a hardbound book with stunning photography, which tells the story and illustrates the technical and artistic challenges of making the firearm and accompanying accessories. We will be happy to offer the book at self cost to interested parties.

Format: 350 x 255 mm (138 x 100 inch)
Pages: 58
Price: 60 Euro
