Exotic elegance: a smiling elephant walks across a map of India, complete with cities and geographical notations, for an attractive heirloom aesthetic. This large paperweight is handmade in the USA and features Victoria Fischetti's signature on the bottom, as well as a scratch-free, velvet bottom pad. Victoria Fischetti is an accomplished graphic designer, collagist and decoupagist whose eclectic work brings together design, color and form in a refreshingly different way. Decoupage is the art of adorning surfaces with collage to form a complete design. A glass piece is used to which intricate collages and paper designs are glued. The design is completed with a beautiful background paper or gold-leaf paint that fills in the areas not covered by images. For protection at least 10 coats of varnish follow.
