The Creatures of Nature collection is a tribute to the environment and the beauty of gardens and the natural world. Of Nature revels in the timeless symbols that appear prominently in history, art and architecture. For instance, the acanthus leaf has adorned architecture, ceramics, woodwork, furniture and metalwork since ancient Greece. Bees have symbolic significance in many cultures, particularly as a model of community, industriousness, and family. Butterflies and Dragonflies also have powerful connotations throughout the world and have been the subject or art and ornament for centuries. Each piece in the Of Nature collection has deep roots in history, design, and the arts.
