Four paper ginkgo leaves. I found these leaves last fall at the Experimental farm in Ottawa. I pressed them to copy in paper. Called a living fossil, ginkgo are some of the oldest trees on earth- they date back to dinosaur times! The leaves are used in medicine and represent longevity.
The painted wooden box is 6 x 9 inches and 3/4 of an inch deep. It is black on the outside and white on the inside. There is hanging hardware on the back and it is signed.
Each of my paper flowers and leaves are handmade with care and attention to detail. This sculpture is made from Italian crepe paper, wire, acrylic paint, and glue. Using high quality materials and careful techniques ensures that my flowers will last a long time. These flowers have also been sprayed with a UV protectant. I include care tips with each purchase. This unique shadow box would make a fun addition to a cabinet of curiosities, a bookshelf, or an art collection. I welcome custom orders for paper flowers; these shadowboxes make a wonderful, thoughtful gift.
