"Apoidea II"
Bee II, Insect Series No. 12
H 6" x W 3"
Hand-cut from black, 80 lb. paper
Original Papercut by Amanda Mattison
Shown alone, with shadows, and with other bees in insect series
This listing is for Bee II - $25.00.

Each of my original designs is hand-cut from a single sheet of paper. This piece is cut from paper which is light-fast, color-fast and acid-free. My work is spontaneous and unique as I do not cut from any type of printed pattern, stencil or picture. I refer to photographs I have taken for my design inspiration, then use a specialized finger-mounted blade to free-hand detailed cuts in paper. In essence, I am sketching with a knife.

Final presentation of papercut artwork is largely dependent upon the preference of the collector; therefore, pieces are sold independently from frames. Your shipment will include the original hand-cut piece temporarily mounted on illustration board for shipping. Each piece is wrapped in custom paper, includes a gift card, and is shipped in protective packaging.

This piece is striking when displayed in a square or rectangular floating mount UV glass frame and will cast lovely shadows against a wall throughout the day. It will also show wonderfully mounted flat against the included illustration board in a frame with or without a mat. If you would like to have a piece framed, please contact me regarding purchase of a custom framing package.
