The human eye is a truely wonderous thing! It can see light and dark, cold and warm, delicate and vibrant colours all at once. Unfortunately, my camera can't...

So you'll just have to imagine what this Tree of Life actually looks like in real life. The central Tree / Goddess figure is in different shades of brown, black and gold. Her arms, hair and branches stretch outwards and upwards, holding all the elements of the four seasons. Spring has dancing butterflies, daffodils and small millefiory flowers, while the branches of the tree are blossoming with beads, more mille and delicate green buds. Summer is full of vibrant green swirls, with added beads and even some jade in there. Autumn (Fall) has seven bright red apples and the leaves of the tree slowly turning to bright oranges, reds and yellows. And finally Winter, with icicles and snow covering the naked branches and the ground beneath her feet. Around the edge of the piece I added symbols for the three phases of the moon and the sun.

The face of the Goddess herself is wise and serene. She looks out of the picture calmly, with her feet/roots firmly anchored in the earth, keeping perfect balance, while all around her everything is in constant movement and turmoil of the changing seasons.

This mosaic measures 60 by 62 cm, it has 8 different grout colours and I lost count of the different kinds of tess. The sides of the picture are painted black, so it does not need a frame and it comes with hooks attached, ready to hang. I signed and dated underneath one of the glas tess in the bottom right corner.

Needless to say this is a one of a kind mosaic and I also lost count of the number of hours I spent working on it. In person it is vibrant and delicate in turns and the surface is also quite strongly textured. I would be glad to provide more pictures if you should so wish.
