Saturday scene: The art collector

Almost two years ago, Rebecca tagged me in a Facebook 'Keep art alive' game, which meant I had to find an image of a work by a particular artist (she chose John Mawurndjul for me) and post it on Facebook .

I duly searched for and saved an image I liked, then had the brilliant thought that it would be fun to include it into a miniature scene.

Today, I finally made the time to do it (sorry Rebecca!)
Modern dolls' house miniature scene of a 1970s display cabinet holding a selection of art objects and books. Next to it is a wooden sculpture, and an aboriginal artwork on the wall.
Even better, I was able to use some recent gifts from Mod Pod Miniatures and Phillip Nuveen (yes, that's a miniature Eames bird. How excited am I?)

And the John Mawurndjul work I chose? It's called Barramundi, and you can buy the real one for $15,500.

Love it and you are indeed lucky to have the Eames bird! Did Phillip make it?

Indeed he did: I spotted it on his Instagram feed and had to have one. Luckily he agreed to a swap :-)

Really lovely, the Eames bird is wonderful, & i'm loving the orange with the wood pieces & basket! I have the Re-Ment with the bowls but they're not a favourite set of mine. They looks so good in the way you've used them here though.
