"Dragonfly and orchid " is an original sumi-e brush painting drawn in Japanese tradition by artist Irina Terentieva.

The graceful wild orchid corresponds with the Eastern ideal picture of a woman. The orchid symbolizes elegance, love, beauty and strength. The image is a perfect gift for a girlfriend, especially as a wedding present if she is a fiancée.

The art of Sumi-e brush painting aims to depict the spirit, rather than the semblance of the object.
Sumi-e is noted for its spontaneity. The nature of the paper and ink demands an instantaneous technique. Once placed on the paper, the brushstroke cannot be modified or erased.

• Size: W13" x H9.5" (33cm x 24cm) - optimal for any size of room.
• Special Sumi-e rice paper glued on white 12pt paper. This paper is translucent, warm and highly absorbent. The red seal on the painting is the artist's nickname and is used as an element in the composition of the work.
• Classical Japanese black ink - suitable for any style of design . The ink is permanent, indelible and does not fade with time. It is transparent and possesses a wonderful richness and depth of tone, vibrancy and luminosity.
• Not Matted, not framed, ready to be framed. Simple Black frame as shown aside will be the best.
• Signed on the back by Me, the Artist and includes Date & Place
