Dubai Miracle Topiary art

According to Latin proverb, Nature starts, art guides, and experience improves. Indeed, this describes the art of topiary. And the unique Floral Park “Dubai Miracle Garden” is a perfect example that. Undoubtfully, it is one of the most interesting areas of landscape architecture.
However, the process of creating green or flower sculptures is a long-term, very laborious and time-consuming. The Dubai garden has a territory of 6.7 hectares. About 45 kinds of various types of flowers grow here. Most of them were specially imported to Dubai, to help the creators of Wonder Gardens to realize their projects. Designers from different countries have developed different landscape designs, and some of them are worth of the Guinness Book of Records. For example, a 10-meter pyramid of flowers, or a 800-meter high wall of plants.

Kaliningrad Amber painting
These paintings are made by hand from amber. Every stone of amber is a frozen ray of sunshine kept for 40 million years. So, the picture from the amber is not only a unique work of art, but also a part of the sun’s heat, zipped through millions of years. Landscapes, portraits, icons, images of fauna and flora made of amber radiate a positive energy and have a positive effect on a person. Love for amber painting is due to the very nature of the origin of the material. The magic of the stone in the hands of artists becomes a work of art. It is the secret that fascinates, and turns painting into something more.

Kirsten is glad that ordinary materials such as yarn and fabric can create beautiful images of nature, which is the main inspiration for her. Kirsten’s embroidery is more like postcards with landscapes, plants, animals. The author emphasizes that she draws inspiration from the contemplation of nature. In addition, she spends a lot of time studying the different types of embroidery, looking for fresh ideas in books on art and photography.
