Commissioned by

The Rijksmuseum Amsterdam
Still life with flowers in a glass vase made by Jan Davidsz. de Heem (1606-1683 / 1684).
I took out the most beautiful flowers and insects and made them as big as possible to show their beauty. Then I carefully positioned them on a new canvas of 100% heavy silk.
