In Japanese culture, the cherry blossom represents the fragility and the beauty of life - a reminder that life is beautiful but also short. And butterflies symbolize love, so this artwork is a reminder to take in the beauty around us and soak it in. To enjoy life to its fullest - to live and love! This delightful hand cut paper artwork would make a perfect engagement or anniversary gift.
The branch is hand painted using watercolours and the lovebirds and butterflies are carefully hand cut using authentic Japanese origami paper. The butterflies antennas are drawn in gold ink.
The collage is done on Canford acid free paper and is provided with a museum quality conservation mount. This artwork does not come framed.
