The Nightingale And The Rose, From Oscar Wilde
The Nightingale and The Rose. Looking for inspiration for an exhibition submission, I walked the Botanic Gardens in Dublin and upon seeing the sundial, it reminded me of the sad Oscar Wilde story of the Nightingale and the Rose, which I loved. This is a large piece (750 x 1400), made by wet felting with needle felted detail, then framed against a black background.
PJ Lynch Gallery: "The Nightingale and the Rose" by Oscar Wilde This is a different Nightingale story and one that is not for children. In fact it still breaks my heart. Poor Wilde, to have written such sad stories about love. The selfish giant by Wilde is much more child friendly and highly recommended.
