Butterfly Ginkgo Candle Snuffer

$80.00

A beautiful and useful gift, this candle snuffer from Michael Aram's Butterfly Ginkgo Collection celebrates the representation of flora as fauna. Michael's fascination with a particular type of ginkgo tree...Ginkgo Biloba, or "Butterfly Ginkgo", which grows with a double leaf reminiscent of a butterfly's wings...gave rise to a fantasia image of the plant. Executed at the highest level of handcraftmanship, each piece is rendered in solid bronze with acid etched cocoon-shaped vessels.

"The first time I saw this tree, it literally looked like it had been completely overtaken by butterflies…" quotes Michael Aram, "as if they would all take flight the moment I walked too close or made a noise. The idea that the leaves could evoke the beauty of butterflies was magical to me, like trees that can metamorphose from flora to fauna in the blink of an eye." The pieces in the collection are a tour de force of Indian craft and capture the poetic spirit that is so deeply indicative of Michael's work.

11.25"L x 4.25"H; Oxidized, Natural Bronze, and Nickelplate Butterfly Ginkgo Candle Snuffer.
