Spellbound in a Winter Wonderland

Dream of a bewitching Christmas filled with jewels fit for a fairy tale, sparkling under a diamond moon.

British Vogue’s Fantastic Fashion Fantasy ~ British artist Su Blackwell

created an enchanting Christmas fantasyland with her wonderful book-cut sculptures.

There is a great interview with Su at My Love for You is a Stampede of Horses, with more examples of her extraordinary work. An exerpt from the interview about this piece:

“I read in a book a Burmese legend about the soul butterfly or win-laik-pya…it is believed that a sleeping person’s soul takes the shape of a butterfly and flies abroad while it’s owner is asleep, searching for the souls of other persons and animals and returning when the owner awakes.  burmese children are still taught never to wake a sleeping person for fear they may die, or worse, live on, without a soul.”
