Dream Garden - Empathy - Bronze / Onyx
As part of my “Dream Garden” collection, this beautifully formed floral bouquet complements the magnificent natural green Onyx gemstone. Onyx is known for it's metaphysical properties of "integrating dualities of self" and connects to the body, to belonging to the earth and family, and putting down roots.
Inspired by those moments when the presence of nature brings openness and connectivity. When all that exists is the connection to the world around you. The Dream Garden allows us to experience life beyond the perceived separation of thoughts, connected to those around you. This is "Empathy".
Hand formed and carved with meticulous details in bronze metal clay, the wonderful Onyx is presented on a majestic platter with a bouquet of flowers symbolizing "the gift of giving". This piece has a deep natural patina (oxidized) to produce the effect of a newly discovered antique. To compliment this effect, a polished gloss finish has been applied to the embellishments.
The reverse of the pendant is nicely decorated with a waxing crescent Moon, representing the selfless giving of women. The Moon gives birth to foliage that represents the nurturing of motherhood.
This creation served as an inspirational piece for Rodis "Royal Bronze Workshop", assisting artists to enhance their skills.
