Nypa

The sculpture Nypa is based on the beautiful fruit of the Nypa palm three in Southern Vietnam. When Petra saw it for the first time she fell in love with the fruit and transported the big fruit to her home in Hanoi. While trying to dry it, the ball fell apart in all the different part. There was no reason to be sad: those parts were even more interesting. One of those parts became the base of a new work, which was really challenging and interesting to create.  On the photos you can see how the base is constructed, searching for the best possible composition.

The hat of Nypa is also about fertility with imprints of different seeds, grass and wood.
