This is a rather serious and pointy looking thing Zac and I made earlier in the week on a whim. It’s from the gold-leaf middle section of a large piece of Chinese funeral paper (joss paper). Don’t ask me why it took two of us— it was just a sport of spontaneous creation moment; he holding the artfully crumpled paper and I darting in with the scissors to make petal shapes. Now it’s up on a wall in an empty gold frame.
