  • Stork Angel Ceramic Wall Hanging
    modernartisans.com
    Our artist interweaves decorative ceramic artworks with narrative animal imagery. The clay medium allows her to capture the whimsical nature of a creature along with the meaningful narrative of the image. Her Stork Angel is an allegorical synthesis of three figurative entities : The Stork - a symbol of childbirth and kindness in Western culture. The Angel - guardianship symbol, personifying divinity and spirituality. The Fish - represents baptism and miracles in Christianity, and happiness and freedom in Buddhism. Furthermore, Celtic lore regarded the fish as a sign of wisdom and birth. With olive leaf in hand (also an image for goodwill), the Stork Angel stands as guardian upon the wall, providing symbolic protection and lively symbolism for the home.

  • No. 1 Remixed Wallpaper design by Arthur Slenk for NLXL Wallpaper
    burkedecor.com
    Designer Arthur Slenk found two boxes of handwritten music sheets over twenty years ago, used by an amateur orchestra between 1872 and 1941. The documents had not seen daylight in almost half a century. Carefully, he started examining page upon page, discovering the genesis, the varying pressure of pen upon paper, a corrected error, a tiny ink stain where the pen had stumbled over a fiber, fingerprints, signs of wear in the corner where the sheet was flipped over – all these traces suddenly shined a light upon the obscure members of this amateur orchestra. He then sorted the sheet music by subject into separate envelopes, and finally pasted. Each design was painstakingly subjected to critical examination, often followed by corrections. After seven years of work that produced 144 Letter-size designs, he considered this enormous task completed. Double-layered non-woven wallpaper. Paste the wall. Colourfast and washable with a soft cloth. No Pattern Repeat. Dimensions : 19” W x 9.83 yards (354") L - Approx. 47 square feet per roll. ASTM E 84-10 Class A Fire Rating.
