200.00

Species: Breadfruit (Artocarpus altilis)/Dimensions: 32.7 x 22cm

This is perhaps the most significant piece yet in the artist’s entire collection, at least to Dessie herself. She collected this leaf from a Breadfruit tree in Puerto Vallarta with the intention of carving a woman’s face and hair, but had no notion of what the face would look like. When she finished, what she saw took her breath away. Staring fiercely back at her was, to the artist’s mind, the face of Mother Nature herself. The eyes radiate a glow of strength and depth, seeming to pierce the soul of the beholder, and the features are strong and native. The duality of Nature seems to be perfectly embodied in this precious piece of art.
