A beautiful and bright 3D artwork with bamboo and dragonflies.
I love dragonflies! They remind me of my lazy summers spent in Italy as a child. My Mother would read to my brothers and I in the heat of the day, as we sat on the gondola and the dragonflies would flit by the pool, their iridescent wings catching the sun. Magical memories!
The dragonfly is connected to the symbolism of change and light, and in Chinese culture, bamboo symbolises strength and acceptance of the natural flow. So I like to think that by buying this artwork you are bringing a bit more lightness and joy into your life.
Each component is carefully drawn and hand cut from Japanese chiyogami papers. Their luminescence lends such a wonderful light and vibrancy to my artworks, which is why I love using them. Each component is then raised at differing heights imbuing the art with a real depth.
The artwork comes in a delicate lime washed tulip wood box frame and is signed in the bottom left hand corner.
