Gems of South Minneapolis, Lake Nokomis and Lake Hiawatha have a long and fascinating history. Moreover, they provide a green space for reconnecting with nature amidst a bustling urban life.

The lake's namesake, Nokomis, was the grandmother of the famous Indian hero Hiawatha, and the two of them are forever connected in this location, the beautiful Minnehaha Creek running through them both like an artery, pulsing water all the way to the Mississippi.

This is an original, layered papercut piece, handmade in Minnesota, in a bright set of Aqua blues, and featuring the lovely Lakes Nokomis and Hiawatha, and the Minnehaha Creek running right off the edges.

This unique piece is intricately cut from five layers of high quality, acid-free cardstock. The top layer is a bright white, while the layers underneath are in ever-darker shades of color. Because this piece is handmade, it will differ very slightly from piece pictured here. The back is titled, signed and dated as an original piece.

The work measures 8 x 10 inches (about 20 x 25 cm), and is about 1/8" thick. It will be sent to you carefully wrapped and supported to ensure it arrives safely.

Like the piece, but prefer a different color? Check out the fifth photo in this listing for all available color sets and be sure to mention your color choice in the message to seller upon checkout.
