Description

Butterfly and Fallen Blossoms Upon the Water
Miniature patchwork collage, approximately 5.75" long by 4" wide (15 x 10 cm).

Popular gift item for a gardener or nature enthusiast.
Ready to frame and fits a stand 10" x 8" (25 x 20 cm) frame.
-----
Finished with a 10" x 8" (25 x 20 cm) white paper mat, 4.5" x 3.5" (11 x 9 cm) opening.
Mounted on 10" x 8" (25 x 20 cm) acid free watercolor paper 140 lb.
Signed & Numbered: Mat signed L. Olszanski on the lower right in pencil. Numbered on reverse.

Cotton fabrics were stitched to a foundation fabric, and embroidered in the style of crazy patchwork with gold metallic thread. Faux cloisonné butterfly charm.
-----
The butterfly's metamorphosis from a caterpillar and emergence from it's chrysalis symbolize rebirth and resurrection. To the Chinese and Japanese the butterfly is a sign of both immortality and joy. In Chinese art, butterflies combined with plum blossoms symbolize long life.

Many of the textile collages I create are inspired by the Asian art displayed in Tokonoma alcoves. Tokonomas were the sacred center of a traditional Japanese home, and reserved for treasured items like scrolls or calligraphy, beautiful kimonos, ikebana flower arrangements, miniature bonsai trees, and fine ceramics for tea ceremonies. The items displayed were changed for special occasions, according to the season, or to create different settings and atmospheres.
