This gorgeous picture is a one-of-a-kind original by Italian-born North Carolina artist and designer, Vanessa Rumaz Boyd.
All of her fairies are crafted to represent a specific subject. If you look closely, you will discover a marvelous world of fantastic creatures and enchanting settings.
Within this fairy you will find (among other things):
~The Rialto Bridge
~The Saint Mark's Lion (also the symbol of Venice)
~A gondol boat and its 'gondoliere'
~The Ponte delle Maravegie or Bridge of Marvels, site of an important Venetian legend.
~The entry to the Giardino delle Mravegie or Garden of Marvels. A magical place of such beauty that visitors are charmed into forgetting its location.
~The famouns Saint Mark's square lamps
....and many many other fantastic places and creatures and items that are closely related to the venetian country.
This picture is signed and beautifully double-framed with linen matting (signature on the matting) then double-framed with a 2 1/2"wide wooden frame, and glass sealed.
It measures 26"L x 22"w x 2 1/4" deep. The frame is an antique gold.
Vanessa's FantaFairies are truly spectacular and possess so much fine detail that studying them in depth takes hours and hours, and you'll find all sorts of hidden meanings and fantastical hidden images if you have a keen eye or imagination.
Vanessa created this 3-dimensional mixed-media piece of art with her FantaFairy named Ariadne, the FantaFairy of Venice, Italy.
Please pardon the photographs! They just don't do this picture justice. I'll keep trying!!
