MYoD15 - 12-1 - Baroque - Heide

Name of the maker: Heide

Name of the piece: Baroque Splendour

I love still life paintings. The Baroque still life paintings boast a very particular splendour and MYoD gave me the impetus to work with this theme.

Immediately, I envisioned these exuberant flower vases. Some time ago, a friend's mother had given me a box with blossoms in hand-made bobbin lace and other samples which proved perfect for my purpose. In my mental search for a vase or anything similar, I remembered the copper templates which are used to embroider linen for trousseaus. 

However, I didn't want to show only the beauty, but I also intended to hint at the coding in the Baroque still life paintings. Therefore I attached a feather for the element air, the falling leaf represents withering and decay of nature and the broken needle symbolizes time and the finiteness of existence for us humans.
