This highly intricate and elaborate Original artwork depicts a stunning tree, populated by spectacular birds, cats and insects. Inspired by Kristjana's work for the Rio Olympics 2016, you can find butterflies with national flags integrated into their wings flying around the tree and hidden among the leaves you can find medals and trophies.
