Frozen Island Diorama

100.00

2"x3" bell jar stand display with a 19th c. merchant ship model navigating iceburgs in an Arctic sea. Each sail is hand cut and placed on a handmade ship model using archival glue. "Frozen Island" is Inspired by a passage from Richard Henry Dana Jr's Two Years Before the Mast :

"…And there lay, floating in the ocean, several miles off, an immense, irregular mass, its top and points covered with snow, and its centre of a deep indigo color…. As far as the eye could reach, the sea in every direction was of a deep blue color, the waves running high and fresh, and sparkling in the light, and in the midst lay this immense mountain-island, its cavities and valleys thrown into deep shade, and its points and pinnacles glittering in the sun….But no description can give any idea of the strangeness, splendor, and, really, the sublimity, of the sight."

*Each Piece will vary slightly.

** Made to Order. Please allow 2-3 weeks for production and shipping. 

***Orders placed after Dec. 5th NOT GUARANTEED to be received before Christmas
