Three elementary substances join hands in this color: ivory black, which is produced by charring bones; umber, an earth pigment formed by tectonic plate movements; and chalk, composed of primordial marine shells. The result is a sublime, earthy black. Lightning dazzles us at night, and this color is used accordingly, since it makes everything look more luminous. Bronzes and metallic colors are brilliant set off against such a background, but also bright colors and gentle pastels such as rose, for example.
