preserved floral meadow scene with domed antique bubble glass~this piece feels like peering into an alpine meadow of pixies and wildflowers. May it fill your home with serenity and radiance, allowing all who look through it to emerge lighter, wonder-filled.
This Italian vintage frame (~1950's) was hand-selected and re-purposed by me. All plants and wings are glued directly onto glass and then covered with antique domed bubble glass for protection and shine.
This piece contains fern, statice flower, chamomile, silver ragwort, various other preserved wildflowers, and the wings of a small butterfly native to the Andes mountains, found naturally expired on my grandmother's farm in Colombia.
All creatures in my artwork were collected after passing away naturally, and are 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.
