This piece is a 40x30cm mirror frame carved from lime and depicting a jungle scene. It has had both gesso and clay bole applied in preparation for gilding - the next and final step for this project.

It was carved from an original drawing of Alice's portraying tropical foliage and flowers (fruit salad plant, aristolochiajungle lilies), animals (a tree frog) and creepy-crawlies (ants, a spider) in a whimsical composition.‚Äč
