English Rose, hand cut Topographical map of Great Britain, 55 cm wide by 70 cm high (frame size).

I love the notion of the English rose, that fleeting beauty of the rose, so tender and delicate. For this piece I used a vintage topographical map of Great Britain. The beautiful contours forming the folds and petals of the rose.
