“Colour! What a deep and mysterious language, the language of dreams.” –Paul Gaugin
“The craving for colour is a natural necessity just as for water and fire. Colour is a raw material indispensable to life. At every era of his existence and his history, the human being has associated colour with his joys, his actions and his pleasures.” –Fernand Leger
The colours in the chair are inspired by the multi coloured local parrots. Even the velvet fabric is like the bird–it shines either dark or light depending on what angle it is viewed, how the light strikes it. The curved wood crowning the chair is a piece of drift-wood with stones entrapped from its origins as a tree root (I added a few stones where the others had fallen out). The other wood is Cottonwood I think with Honey-suckle vines twining around it.
