"Treasures” Limited Edition by Santie Cronje
There are a few specific elements in “Treasure” to enhance the meaning of this piece and its title. In 1907 Royal Doulton released a range of pottery called “Kia Ora” in beautiful rich colours and intricate Maori patterns. On 28 December 1907 the last Huia was sighted. All that is left today are the huia feathers – a special treasure for many.
The centre flower is a native South African protea called the “Blushing Bride”. Once thought to be extinct, these extraordinary white proteas rose from the ashes like a phoenix after a bush fire was said to have wiped out the only known wild population. The fire caused the seeds to germinate and flourish. And last we have the beautiful enduring rose and the adored broken tulips that were so popular in the 17th century in Holland.
