Underwater Dreams - SOLD
This is first in a series of hares, water, and mermaids theme which a beautiful lady I met at my first art fairinspired. This little hare sleeps and dreams of an underwater world, or perhaps floats, waiting to be born into a beautiful glade where the sun and the stars are always visible. An original watercolor placed in crushed gold handmade Nepalese paper. Framed with blue trim and sequins like sun gleaming on water.
Inside the box I placed a small piece of driftwood and found stones from Lake Michigan. Outside, the tin nicho is watercolor on ground, painted with spiral designs and gleaming with small Czech glass cabochons.
The pink, magenta bow offsets the top of the nicho, like a deep purple shell. And the tassel is made of recycled silk saris. I also added a small tin heart, a piece which once belonged to some ceremonial afghan dress.
