Description
A recent trip to India and a visit to the Kolkata Museum inspired this piece. The structures and textures of huge fossilized remains of long gone Ordovician marine creatures on display, called Nautiloids, fascinated and begged me to create an abstract from my impression. Formed from a variety of German mould-made and Asian handmade papers based on various plant fibres to give the organic textures and natural colours. Framed in raw Tasmanian Oak hardwood finished with beeswax and acrylic glazing. In private collection.
