The Butterfly Ginkgo Collection celebrates the representation of flora as fauna. Michael's fascination with a particular type of ginkgo tree, the ginkgo Biloba, or "Butterfly ginkgo", which grows with a double leaf reminiscent of a butterfly's wings, gave rise to a fantasia image of the plant. Executed at the highest level of handcraftsmanship, each piece is rendered in solid bronze with acid etched cocoon-shaped vessels. The pieces in the collection are a tour de force of Indian craft and capture the poetic spirit that is so deeply indicative of Michael's work.
The Butterfly Ginkgo candle is inspired by a variety of ginkgo tree known as the "ginkgo biloba", where the leaves grow in such a manner that they are suggestive of butterflies. There is something very poetic about the idea of the ginkgo leaves metamorphosing into butterflies which land back on the branches that bore them.
