A flash that revealed the invisible world…Rilke

Via Flickr:
This is from my new series of assemblages/ icons created with antique decorative metal door plates. I made a Frozen Charlotte like doll with a Plaster of Paris mold. I used great antique jewelry pieces and gold gilt paint. I used a found metal fashioned piece across the back of the work. I added the above quote by Rilke and put a tiny piece of map peeking through the key hole. The figure has tiny insect wings. The door piece is 7 inches long and 2.5 inches wide.
