NZD 12122009

As with most currencies, there were many national icons and colors to the New Zealand Dollar.  This is the 20 held up to a window to show that watermarks to the right.  It also contained a “window” – the fern to the left that could only be seen when the light shown through.

I like the layers of images and colors, but there is still a strength in the ferns and the text.

You could extend that thought to weaving certain sections in clear or smoky monofibre. I'm doing a lot of layering in my collages with different types of sheers.
And thanks for your comment. K.

I can't help thinking that fern would look much better carved, perhaps in jade?

I think I'll have to look into making a fern in jade! ;-)
