About The Artwork

This unique sparkling diorama is part of Lisa Swerling's series of miniature worlds in boxes, "Glass Cathedrals." Lisa has made several Frida Kahlo portraits. For this gallery design, she used Frida Kahlo's own words as inspiration: “I am my own muse. I am the subject I know best. The subject I want to know better.” Lisa is best is known for her three-dimensional custom portraits in boxes, where she recreates people and scenes in miniature dioramas. Weddings, travels, homes, favorite places - Lisa has made Glass Cathedrals for hundreds of families, lovers, individuals, each unique and extraordinary in their own way. Scale: HO 1:87 The figures are hand-painted, and not much bigger than pea-height. :) Hanging: "Glass Cathedral" diorama can nestle in a shelf, or easily hang on a french cleat (provided) on a wall.
