Rice Paper Butterflies on Cherry Blossoms - Japanese Chiyogami Series
2018 Limited Edition Framed Butterfly Collage
Highly dimensional, multi-layered art collage features a pair of highly detailed, photo-realistic Black and White Rice Paper Asian butterflies fluttering atop an ornate Japanese Chiyogami paper cherry blossom paper background. Their large wings are tilted upward to further enhance the illusion of realistic mounted specimens.
The exquisite traditional Japanese paper is incredibly ornate and vibrant. A work of art on it's own, the paper gets its depth of color from the complex hand-screened process whereby each color is laid down one at a time and cured before the next can be applied.
So much detail to admire in this elegant work of art! Finished with a custom layered matte and high-gloss Baroque lacquer frame measuring approximately 16"x19".
This is a signed, original work available in very limited quantities.
