La Nature...

On the day that I found the beautiful silk and sequin fan in a local antique shop, I also came across the above bronze decorative moulding - presumably taken from some piece of furniture. The enigmatic expression drew me in and I could not resist the temptation of becoming its next guardian for the coming years!
Although it is not in any particular Art Nouveau style, my decorative moulding has a mysterious air that reminds me of the sculpted bust La Nature by the Czech artist Alphonse Mucha (1860–1939), itself said to be modelled on the elegant Cléo de Mérode.
As 2020 draws to an end, I hope that my decorative moulding will act as a talisman to ward off ugliness in any form in 2021 so that I can find some beauty, elegance and wonder in any situation or setting!


  1. She's LOVELY, and I am sure in the hands of a very good guardian indeed. I'm a huge fan of Mucha but I know I haven't seen all his works, so thank you for introducing me to ~La Nature~ too.

  2. Hello! Isn't she beautiful? In fact, there are several versions of La Nature - with varying jewellery and details... all equally gorgeous, of course!

    1. Oooo, I'll have to do further research, thank you again!
