The Ladybird & The Heron - Original Artwork 2021


The story behind the artwork

Allow yourself to be transported to the glorious Spanish Golden Age, a time of flourishing arts and literature, opulence and heightened realism. A moment where the picaresque, the pastoral and the romantic join hands in an explosion of artisitic exploration, and displayed here in Kristjana’s mesmeric 3D tableau. Against a darkened backdrop of an old oil painting, sumptuous golds and satin-esque creams in the style of the old masters, imbue the warmth and excitement of celebration; this artistic pinnacle celebrated as much by the human characters as their animal counterparts, each sharing in the carnivalesque atmosphere. The crested heron a symbol of independence in this new era; the diminutive ladybird belies its size with its powerful positivity.
