Double Happiness

‘Double Happiness’ was commissioned by a wife to give to her husband to celebrate their
Silver Wedding Anniversary. Her husband had been brought up in Kenya, she is half Chinese.

Presented with the carved African figures, a glass monkey from Prague, a champagne cork and a sliver
of material from her wedding dress, I constructed a Kenyan dawn celebration with oriental overtones.

It is traditional to use red characters on wedding cards in China. The writing on the silk banner,
hanging from the onion skin tree with twenty five heart shaped leaves, says “Double Happiness”.
