my shrine to tamed nature with stone wolf, rolled leaf flowers, chained butterflies, and cardboard stars.




close up images of the butterflies on chains, stone wolf, and leaf flowers

Decorated top comes off and can be used as a "secret" box (as my daughter calls it)

Feel free to comment and offer constructive criticism (be gentle I bruise easily)

This is beautiful!  I love the flowers at the top.  And I agree, the symbolism is subtle, yet pervasive.

This is wonderful! I like the dimensional feel of it - it seems like I could crawl right inside and sit with the butterflies. Great job!

It feels like summer to me!  I really like all the colour and movement Smiley  Extra cool to make it a "secret box" too!
