Garden of Insects - Snail Vase
Bordallo Pinheiro's Insect Garden collection is a set of vases covered with leaves, on which six insects, both terrestrial and flying, roam. These little garden inhabitants, which include a snail, frog, lizard, dragonfly, bee and ladybird, wander mischievously over the vases to weave a link between nature and ceramics.
