Celtic Inspired Art Card and Mega Insect Hotel

img_5859-1My Celtic inspired Illusion-Fusion ‘Horses, Hares & Swans’ art card is now available at Etsy.  I am still in such admiration for Iron Age Celtic artwork. It combines shape-shifting illusions with geometrical and decorative designs in a way that dazzles me. You see circles and rotating designs in which faces appear and disappear; in which animal forms materialize and disappear again. As if the viewer goes through a shamanistic consciousness changing experience.  The questions and challenges surrounding Celtic art and the fun of experimenting with blending animals, shapes, and forms keeps me busy.

Talking animals. I like to show you a huge insect hotel that my family came across during one of our walks. In fact, it is so well designed, small mammals, birds, and reptiles might seek refuse in it before winter comes or before a passing storm. Being impressed by this hotel, I feel obliged to write a recommendation for my animal friends.

Grand Insectum

Set in the Dutch estate of Amelisweerd, a few km outside the Medieval town of Utrecht, this  high-end hotel is your top-location where you feel pampered. Come and enjoy culinary delights, relax at whatever suites that fits you, and hibernate till you can overlook Amelisweerd’s lush green meadows again. Occasionally you will meet fellow guests with mammal, bird-like, or reptile appearances; should this lead to you feeling uncomfortable, our front desk personal will relocate you without any extra costs. We offer Royal Suites, Junior Suites, and Double Suites. Hibernating at the Insectum is all about your well-being.

  1. A great creation for wild birds to nest!!! I am wondering if there are any heavy branches hidden in among all the brush and leaf debris for the birds to stabilize their nest; otherwise, a strong wind might blow everything apart. Thanks for sharing.

    1. Dear Lois,
      I don’t know whether birds would use this hotel as a nesting site. But I can picture some birds crawling under the roof tiles to hide away for a storm. It is a solid structure and a joy to study close-up. An insect paradise. 💛

  2. I figure my wood piles offer a home to whatever wants to live in them, but this is definitely more attractive. I like seeing your Celtic inspired creations, and like the Sashiko patterns and inspirations too.
