The Little Prince in the “Medusa” exhibition

“Because it’s joined to it, jewelry may speak for the body when the latter is silent: it identifies the dead,” writes Michèle Heuzé in the “Medusa” exhibition catalogue. This engraved silver-oxide bracelet made it possible to solve the mystery of Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s disappearance, when in 1998, a fisherman brought it up in his nets in a rocky inlet near Marseille. This piece finally gave the clue to locating the zone in which the writer’s plane disappeared in 1944. It’s the key to the mystery! In 2003, some remains of the cabin were finally brought to the surface from the depths some 70 meters below.
