Strange Garden neckpiece

The title Strange garden alludes to a Polish Symbolist Painting of the same name. The scale and colour of this painting coupled with the uncanny nature of the flying creature depicted has returned again and again to my thoughts. The idea of a parallel place, a secret garden that exists but at the same time cannot.
