Love Nest Series - Wall Art

This series began in response to Valentine's Day, for which I have mixed feelings. Originally the holiday was rooted in Roman fertility festivities as well as martyrdom. Then the Christian faith added Saint Valentine to counteract pagan rituals. Eventually cards were designed and exchanged, which was a popular activity in Victorian times. Today the holiday seems to be rooted in commercialism. As a child I looked forward to Valentine's day. In adulthood the gloss rubbed off and that day would emphasize my singleness rather than celebrate romance. Here then is a beautiful, lopsided heart in Victorian style, but formed by creeping caterpillars instead of flowers as seen at first glance.
