395 megapixels! A very high resolution, large-format VAST photo print of flower blossoms and a moth; macro nature photograph created by Anja Axelsson

The Moth and The Appleblossom

395 MEGAPIXEL VAST PHOTO

A multilayered botanical portrait of a singular moth fluttering above apple-blossom, at night.

In this timeless composition, Anja seeks to explore the rich complexity that hides within this imagery. Moths hold a significant position in the Native American culture. Many tribes like the Hopi used these insects, their dance, and forms on their pottery. For the Blackfoot people, these winged insects represent sleep, dreams, and souls of the dead.
Native Americans believe that both butterflies and moths teach us there must always be death for rebirth and growth to occur. These winged creatures encourage us to release singular ego attachments and make room for the rich complexity of our authentic nature.
Since moths are nocturnal and come out at night, they are the teachers and guides of the dreamtime, of the repressed shadow aspects of ourselves, and our disowned wilder nature.

The Druids regarded the apple tree as charmed because of its ability to transform. They marvelled at the awe-inspiring blossoms that changed into an equally magnificent fruit, which also had the power of longevity since it remained fresh when stored. The Druids believed that eating an apple could transport them to a paradisal nether-world. Then through fermentation and pressing, it became hard cider which when drunk transformed the drinker!

VAST Print™

A VAST Print™ represents the pinnacle of the photographic medium. Each print is a true photograph created specifically for you using light-sensitive paper exposed in a darkroom with the industry's highest precision exposure technique. Your print is then sealed with a shine-enhancing protective glossy coating*, adhered to a sturdy aluminum composite backing, and finished in one of two ready-to-hang formats:

  • Frameless floating display: A hidden mounting brace on the rear gracefully "floats" the print off the wall for a sleek, modern look.
  • Framed display: The print is mounted inside one of our handcrafted 100% wood frames with a decorative separation between the print and the frame so that the print appears to be floating within the frame, providing depth and elegance to the finished photo.

*Note: a non-glossy, satin matte coating is alternatively available on request.
