Alice in Wonderland tells of a young girl named Alice who falls through a rabbit hole into a fantasy world populated by peculiar people and creatures. If you’re a fan of the classic book or even the movies, then it’s time to ‘step through the looking glass.’
Created by Russian artist Marina Adamova, discover gorgeous paper-cut scenes and characters recreated from this children’s classic. This Alice in Wonderland-mad artist has carefully recreated scenes and characters, each encapsulated in clear Christmas baubles as small as the palm of a hand. The detail in these pieces is incredible, especially when you consider their size.
Using papers of various colours and textures, Marina depicts the White Rabbit, Cheshire Cat, and even Alice herself. Each of her Christmas tree baubles is designed and constructed with careful attention paid to each separate layer. And layer upon layer of cut shapes creates 3D images of some of the most famous scenes from the book. Even the softened hues add a layer of subtlety to the whole thing.
Alice In Wonderland has been Marina’s favourite book since childhood and she hopes to portray a light-hearted side of the tale through this series.
“There were three things I liked the most: the sharp knife I use, double meanings in fairytales and symbolism in illustrations”.
The most remarkable thing about these Alice in Wonderland baubles is when the light comes through the paper-cut scenes seem to come to life. Marina’s works are so impressive that starting in November they will be shown at the Paper Artist Collective pop-up in Oslo, Norway.
