This adorable, impressive hand cut, multi-layered silhouette is amazing. The artist "hand-cut" each intricate piece, then carefully layered them on red paper to create the raised three-dimensional appearance, adding accents and shading with colored chalk.

The little girl's collar is one piece, as is the sleeve which is wrapped around her arm. The lovely dandelion flower looks very realistic with the tiny paper seedlings spreading into the air.

This art quite likely began as a handmade greeting card, which was obviously much loved and the previous owner felt it warranted preservation under glass, within this paper sealed square wood frame. A sweet poem has been attached to the back . . .

Dandelions are a sure sign
That Spring is in the air
And brightly colored flowers
Soon will pop up everywhere
And so at Easter, hope you'll find
Your happiness has grown
Just like the Easter flowers
From the seeds of joy you've sown!

I have never seen anything like this unique piece no matter how hard I have searched. It was a challenge to photograph without reflection and the true color shades were difficult to capture, but are between to two contrasts, not as dark or as light as photos.

There is a penciled name "Timmonds" in the lower left corner, artist or recipient, I can't be certain.

Artwork measures: 5 1/4" x 5 1/4"

The craft of paper tole and three-dimensional decoupage produce these lovely pieces which are done by layering paper cuts to get a raised 3D effect.
