"Deep Purple Dreams - Three Faces of Love"

"Deep Purple Dreams" is carved in a natural crystal of Bolivian ametrine. The theme is based on the Mitchell Parish song "Deep Purple". In my carving, three faces representing True Love, Memories and Desire await last light to return to their beautiful dream garden. The abstract flower motif was taken from the clematis buds that were blooming on my own garden wall. A copyrighted and signed original carving.(click on the picture to enlarge then click your "back" arrow at top to return)

"Deep Purple Dreams" was enhibited at the Headley-Whitney Museum's exhibition "Cutting Edge" from January through March 2010.

This sculpture weighs approx.1,120 carats. Ametrine is named for the combination of amethyst and citrine which are both present in one crystal. Due to the two colors, the figures change from gold to purple as the sculpture is rotated to show Memory, Desire and Dreams of love. The crystal sits on a base of polished black granite that is engraved with the title. POR

Here are the lyrics to the Mitchell Parish song:

When the deep purple falls
over sleepy garden walls
and the stars begin to flicker in the sky
thru the mist of a memory
you wander back to me
breathing my name with a sigh.

In the still of the night
once again I hold you tight.
Tho' you're gone your love lives on when moonlight beams
and as long as my heart will beat,
lover, we'll always meet
here in my deep purple dreams.
