To go on with the suitcases, the artist decided to use and adapt the ancient art of cameos.
The term cameo comes from the word "Kame'o" used in Kabbalistic language to designate a "magic square", i. e. a kind of talisman worn by ladies who commissioned artists to carve these pieces over shells.
The technique has since been undergoing through periodic revivals, at the beginning of the Renaissance, and again in the 18th and 19th centuries. The French neoclassical revival began with the support of Napoleon.
Why Cameo? - Responds Pagano "I can not use the term ‘camafeo’ (Portuguese for cameo) because shells are traditionally used as a basis for engraving cameos, in this case I replaced it with suitcases. I decided to use the cabalistic term 'cameo' as a way to wish good luck to my niece in this new season".
