This piece is named after Antheia, Greek goddess of flowers, growth, and love. She is symbolized by wildflowers, gold, and honey~and in her spare time was said to make humans fall in love and flowers bloom. May she bring a sense of beauty and humility, just as wildflowers do, into your home. May she bring good fortune in Love and community. And may she serve as representation of the gentle, lovely things in life--reminding you of what is truly important. A reminder also that beauty springs forth from within you at all times, if you so choose to embody it.
This piece contains pansy, fern, lavender, german statice flower, hydrangea, various wild leaves, peacock feather tendrils, goldleaf, and the wings of a rice paper butterfly (Idea leuconoe).
This butterfly was purchased from a sustainable butterfly sanctuary. This beautiful creature was collected after passing away naturally, and is now honored and cherished forever.

~Each piece that I make is created in an intentional, devotional space. I sit with the plants and create whatever my inner vision directs me to. This is my sacred practice, and it is suffused with magic and love!~
Not for outdoor placement, keep indoors to avoid water damage.-
Best to keep away from direct sunlight, as the plants will fade over time if placed in a window! The fading of plants is natural and does not take away from their beauty, but rather reminds us of the constant change in life. If you are okay with this, then a window is fine. But keep in mind--the colors will stay forever if kept away from direct strong light
