“CIOCIO-SAN” is an original art work inspired by John Luther Long's short story "Madame Butterfly".
It is and absolutely new form of 3D mixed media that I developed on my own in 1994, while living in my native country, the Republic of Moldova using only discarded different species fish bones.
The natural color of bones, glued on the black velvet background provides contrast and brings each scene to life. Each work seems to offer the fish a new life in an unexpected way. (placed in a black shadow box)
