Sir Elton John created the Elton John AIDS Foundation (EJAF) 25 years ago. Through hard work and with the help of its generous friends and supporters, the foundation has raised more than $350 million to combat stigma, prevent infections, provide treatment and services, and motivate governments to end AIDS. In November 2017 to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the foundation, the honour was presented to Elton John himself.
Once again we were invited by Bulgari to create the trophy for the 2017 award. Formed from six sections of natural and semi-precious stones, the trophy takes the form of a sculptural monolith, serving as a striking tribute to the foundation and its founder.
Constructed from amethyst, blue granite, green granite, Giallo Siena marble, orange onyx and Rosso Levanto marble, the trophy’s coloured sections represent the international reach of the foundation’s work and the coming together of people from all over the word to fight the HIV/AIDS virus. The inclined shape references the progress made in research and prevention as well as acknowledging that there is still a mountain to climb before the HIV/AIDS is eradicated.
