Michael's fascination with a particular type of ginkgo tree, the ginkgo Biloba or "Butterfly ginkgo" which grows with a double leaf reminiscent of a butterfly's wings gave rise to a fantasia image of the plant. Product dimension - stand - 5.75" L x 5" W x 9" H, cup - 2.25" H x 2.25" diameter, saucer - 0.5" H x 4.75 diameter. Set includes 4 demitasse cups, 4 saucers and 1 stand.Product weight - 8 lbs. A unique and artistic presentation of Flora as Fauna. Executed at the highest level of handcraftsmanship, each piece is rendered in solid bronze with acid etched cocoon-shaped vessels. The pieces in the collection are a tour de force of Indian craft and capture the poetic spirit that is so deeply indicative of Michael's work. The first time I saw this tree, it literally looked like it had been completely overtaken by butterflies as if they would all take flight the moment I walked too close or made a noise. The idea that the leaves could evoke the beauty of butterflies was magical to me, like trees that can metamorphose from flora to fauna in the blink of an eye.
