Flight remains one of man's greatest dreams, something we have only mastered through leaps of technology and by strapping ourselves into machines that allow us to soar... Something that Nature achieved seemingly effortlessly in countless animal species from vastly different families. Our embroidered series »Wings« takes us on a journey across the animal kingdom to explore their own »technology« that allows them to fly. The embroidered art pieces can be purchased as a single piece of 40 x 40 cm (15,7 x 15,7 in), but if you wish to furnish your office, home or business with several, the series is available as a full set of 8 embroidered pieces.
Butterfly's wings are a universal symbol of beauty and fragility, more than any other flying animal, because they are large (compared to its body) and full of color, making us imagine nature as an artist that uses its creations as a colorful canvas for expression. Butterfly wings come in almost any shape and color, but their beauty is also very fragile, as their wings are built from many microscopic scales that can quickly be lost if we handle the butterfly roughly. We can appreciate the beauty of a butterfly from afar, but on this embroidered art piece, we can admire it from up close and wonder at the beauty that nature is able to create.
Spark your own desire to take flight with this beautiful series of embroidered art.
