“He lurked beneath the carnations and roses and when a maiden came to pick them, he flew out as a bee and stung her”....
The DIVINE Collection 2019
One of a kind accessory for the “Divine”
New FIORI Birdcage Handbag embellished with one of my favorite Fontinini vintage figurine, that I have repainted. A mischievous Cupid The Cherub is wearing a handcrafted baroque style miniature FIORI Crown made of vintage ring hand painted in antique gold. A Sweet little Honey Bee representing the secretion of Love hides behind the Roses.
A removable hand dyed and curled ostrich feather tassel that can be attached also to a removable Italian silk pouch that can be worn separately. Color : French Pink , Versailles Blue, Italian Black with matching removable feather charm.
The image of Cupid as bee is part of a complex tradition of poetic imagery involving the flower of youth, the sting of love as a deflowering, and honey as a secretion of love.
