To our wonderful thirty years together.
 

 

Serendipity is easily known as a series of happy coincidences. This piece was specially handcrafted to celebrate a relationship such as that. Over these 30 wonderful years, this union has been built on trust, mutual respect and a lifelong friendship. He wanted to celebrate her devotion to her passion and how she applies the same commitment to their relationship. 

The lily, a flower of devotion and friendship was incorporated into the piece to highlight the presence of these qualities in sustaining their relationship over the years. The steady bloom of a lily flower in the piece expresses the lengthy process of finding and building herself while in pursuit of her passion. The same goes with a relationship. It requires us to build and support the other person in building a life together. As for the flower buds surrounding the lily, each encases a pearl to represent her the cultivation of her talent and potential in the arts. 

As for the flower buds surrounding the lily, each encases a pearl to represent her the cultivation of her talent and potential in the arts. The pearl is also known to signify patience, just as how it comes into existence from a grain of sand to the constant layers of nacre into an iridescent gem. Much like the care needed to nurture a long-lasting relationship.

We hope this piece celebrates her achievements and how she has exceeded the expectations set before her. Her artwork includes complex yet realistic expressions of Michelangelo with a playful twist of cartoon objects. We had incorporated a twist of our own, which is the Gumby charm to complete the piece, commending on her playful approach to art and the devotion she carries with her to pursue her passion.
