Lot description

This shimmering panorama of a traditional Korean landscape with high cliffs and deep valleys, is painted in an ethereal palette of soft roses and tranquil pinks, with hundreds of delicate SWAROVSKI crystal elements archivally hand applied by the artist in specific lines and patterns, that transform this work into a mystical fantasyscape, one that literally shimmers with soft light.
