|Description||A feather and wire floral wreath in a wooden shadowbox. The wreath is open-topped and a separate floral arrangement exists at the centre of the display. The wreath is composed largely of faux lilies and peonies in a variety of colours, along with green leaves also fabricated from feathers. Some petals exhibit a spotted pattern. A few of the pistils have been simulated using crinkled paper. Dried ornamental grass has been added to the central arrangement. Pearl like items were used to recreate one flower toward the top of the central bouquet. The background of the shadowbox is a black velvet fabric. The frame is divided by a groove into an area of dark wood around the outer edge and an inner area treated with a red surface finish and faux grain.|
