Triptychs and diptychs of Renaissance and Flemish baroque masterpieces
The French company and gallery have teamed up to produce the 504 series, a set of art pieces on limited edition surf and skateboards. Now the discerning surfer/culture vulture can purchase triptychs and diptychs of Renaissance and Flemish baroque masterpieces. Each is individually handmade and limited to eighty skateboards and ten surfboards. If you’re interested then it will set you back $US2,140 (£1400) for the surfboards and $US293 (£190) for the triptych and $202 (£130) for diptych skateboards.
