"Taken on Hikkaduwa Beach, Sri Lanka as the sun was setting; casting its golden rays along the beach... The image endeavours to celebrate of the noble presence and elegant sway of the ubiquitous palm tree. The palm tree has many symbolic meanings and in this image I have tried to highlight its association with immortality and regeneration with the addition of gold leaf. The majority of Sri Lankan identifies as Buddhist and the spiritual associations gave me the title." - Valda Bailey

Each piece is individually hand finished by the artist with gold, silver or copper leaf giving the piece its own unique style.
The piece from the palm series here, although contemporary has also a dose of Art Deco and Art Nouveau style in visual and technical aspect of gold leaf gild on glass and inspired by natural forms such as the sinuous curves of plants and flowers; a sense of dynamism and movement, often given by asymmetry or whiplash lines.
