prickly holly


9 November 1964, USA
Christmas / Holly

This colour combination is from nature, and very seasonal. I learnt an additional reason why Holly is for Christmas – it relates to Christ’s crown of thorns.

I think the intaglio print method suits the expression of the prickly character of holly leaves – and let us imagine how uncomfortable to have to wear a wreath of Holly on your head.
