This unique piece captures a moonlit garden scene. Hand-collected mica crystals from the Appalachian mountains makeup the moonlight in the sky, shining over real preserved wildflowers. A monarch butterfly and a polka dot wasp moth soar over the garden, bringing magic. This serene landscape art is inspired by the full moon shining over the flowers as they dance in the breeze.
Each element of this piece is hand-collected and pressed/preserved by me. This piece contains mica crystals, African blue basil flower, heather, lantana, pansy, purple and white lattice flower, a monarch butterfly, and a polka dot wasp moth.
This butterfly was gifted by a friend who works at a butterfly sanctuary. This beautiful creature was lovingly collected after passing away naturally, and is now honored and cherished forever. The polka dot wasp moth was collected by me in my forest back yard after a heavy rain, where she died of natural causes.
-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.
~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!~
