Lars von Trier creates movie-themed diamonds

13 february 2019

news_13022019_Lars_von_Trier.jpgLars von Trier, a Danish film director and screenwriter, has invested in creating a diamond collection inspired by his films, says the New York Times. 
The first diamond that has been manufactured represents von Trier’s drama Melancholia. It depicts the scene of the movie in which a rouge planet collides with Earth. 
It took van Trier 5 years to cut and polish the 12-carat stone by hand.
He was quoted as saying that he was going to turn 12 more diamonds into his movie scenes but for the process to take less time and effort he was going to use a new laser-based diamond cutting technology.
According the film maker, he tries to capture the mood of the film when creating his works. 
The diamond will be showcased at M HKA, a contemporary art museum in Antwerp, Belgium, till May, 5, 2019.
