Inspired by the Rose - The rose reminds me of a little baby, sweet and innocent, curled up in a velvet bed. I can almost smell its delicate scent and hear a lullaby in the gentle breeze.

"Rose Bed" is a sculptural artwork that features a stylized bloom of a rose. The piece has intricate, overlapping petals with a rich gradient of color, transitioning from a deep, lustrous red at the edges to softer, flesh-toned hues near the center. Within the core of this floral form, there is a childlike figure nestled as if it were the heart of the flower. The figure appears serene and asleep, fitting organically into the curvature of the petals that surround it. This amalgamation of human and botanical elements is mounted on a lightly colored circular base, highlighting the contrast between the organic shape of the flower and the geometric form of the base. The overall impression is one of delicate innocence, and the sculpture evokes themes of nature, life, growth, and the interconnection between the human and natural worlds.
