The idea for the astronomy series was inspired by my astronomer cousin, Dr. Rachel Osten. These pieces were done as a gift for her youngest son’s room.
This is how the quote should read: “Be humble for you are made of earth. Be noble for you are made of stars.” It’s a Serbian proverb. My astronomy quote paper cut art displays the words backwards because I wanted the words and pictures to correspond. The Earth part is written in the earth and the stars part of the quote is written in the sky.
Here, I imagined a deer and turtle visiting an observatory late at night when all of the other astronomers have gone to sleep. They will gaze at the stars until the morning hours.
A butterfly flies by the mountain observatory while the starry sky lights dance above.
