I saw this starfish in a photography; it was beautiful.
Searching among the pieces of wood, I chose this one. It is the inside of a piece of white painted furniture, which is slightly peeling and almost intact in shape. The star I made seems in this way, to be framed as if to enhance its importance. I like to create the three-dimensional effect, and here, I tried to give a particular thickness to the center of the star, to recreate that effect of consistency that red starfishes lying on the sand have.
The mosaic was made using the direct technique on wood from an old piece of furniture.
