Persephone's Journey Wall Adornment
This intricate piece is imbued with messages of transformation and lore. The glass forms an archway, a portal between worlds. The earthy patterning of the Ball Python shed encased within lets the light shine through, illuminating the delicate scales that open onto a view of the unseen. The interplay of metal and negative space creates a landscape of celestial clouds, or the dark mysterious waves of the river Styx, punctuated by diamond shapes holding the brilliant flash of Blue Morpho butterfly wing. Rows of dainty chain are affixed to the bottom of the Like Persephone’s journey to Hades and back, this piece is reminds us that we must make the journey through darkness and uncertainty to return to the light; that duality is constant and necessary for growth, just as sure as the snake sheds its skin and the caterpillar is born anew as the butterfly.

PIECE CARE: Please handle this piece with great care, avoid water and chemical cleaning products. To remove dust simply wipe with a soft cloth. Because of the stained glass medium we work in, we are able to use delicate materials from nature that are very heat-sensitive. Too much heat and the wings change color, sometimes losing the vibrant magic that makes them so special. The metal in our work is an alloy of silver and tin, which melts at a lower temperature than sterling. We 100% stand by our work and have sold thousands of pieces in the eight years we've been in business, with a very small number needing repair. The same way you would take care of a silk blouse, please consider the medium in the treatment of your piece and approach with intention and care.
SHIPPING: Please be sure to read the shipping and policies information before your purchase.
