Winter Games Albertville 1992 Medal
On the obverse, the five Olympic rings can be seen in the foreground, with a valley in the background, in gradation, thus giving the impression of perspective. On the upper part of the metal is an intagliated stylised laurel branch featuring the words: <a href="http://www.olympic.org/albertville-1992-winter-olympics">“ALBERTVILLE 92 XVIes JEUX OLYMPIQUES D’HIVER – XVI OLYMPIC WINTER GAMES”.</a> <br /><br /> On the reverse of the medal, decorative motif is intagliated in the colourless glass. The lines symbolise the mountains. <br /><br /> Created for the first time in glass, set with gold, silver and bronze, the medals were entirely hand-made. Detailed and precise work required several different stages of production. The production of a medal required the contribution of 35 people, and took several hundred hours for Lalique to create the medals.
