MR. Giger and Robert Christoph, Baphomet 2018 Edition 34/169 copy
"In the 1970s and 1980s, I gained international recognition for my unique belt buckle designs. During this time, renowned artist HR Giger visited me in my studio, and so began a remarkable collaboration. Together we created the "Buckle Baphomet 1976" belt buckle. HR Giger attached great importance to the fact that the buckle could also be worn as a piece of jewelry and emphasized the need to implement it in a smaller form.
The special nature of this collaboration is also reflected in the fact that I was the only one who had permission to make a copy of this work of art, as is also noted on the back of the belt buckle from 1976: "Creation by HR Giger and Robert Christoph". This unique collaboration and the combination of HR Giger's fascinating aesthetics with my craftsmanship make this piece of jewelry a true masterpiece.

In the 70s I came up with the idea of creating art on the body. I didn't think about fashion at first until my art became fashion. It is a work in which I can live with the characters from my dreams. Some of these characters are portrayed, others remain untouched within me. But what does that matter? The boundary between idea and reality is very fluid.
His fantastic art fascinated me and by a happy coincidence I met him: HR Giger, the genius of the surrealists, inventor of biomechanical art and the film monster Alien. He was a dear friend and a good teacher.
The bat and the BAPHOMET are also in his constellation.
