3"H, 4.5" Dia.; Green Marble, Natural Brass The Rainforest Collection is inspired by the fragility of the world's natural resources and the mysterious beauty of the flora and fauna found in tropical jungles.
"While on a recent trip to Brazil, I was struck by the beauty of the Amazon rainforest. During my trip, I discovered the work of landscape architect and Brazilian modernist Roberto Burle Marx. His striking work sensitively integrated modern forms and structures with the natural beauty of the country's rainforests. I was very moved by the happy co-existence between the lushness of the forest and the striking modernity of Burle Marx's architectural designs. There is a wonderful contrast between the clean, geometric shapes of the buildings and hardscaping as juxtaposed by the savage, untouched beauty of the rainforest."
