Wings Of The World

After stumbling across a beautiful antique globe at a flea market, artist Wendy Gold was inspired to create a new canvas with a unique take on the world.

Bring vintage appeal, vibrant color, and whimsical design to your home with this gorgeous world map. Each region is populated with a flight of butterflies in blues, purples, yellows and reds across a soothing canvas of pale blue and white ocean. Printed with water-based inks on heavyweight recycled stock canvas, this free-hanging print is finished with a top and bottom frame and suspended with sturdy hanging twine. Made in the USA.

You don't need to look for Wendy on a map. Check out our blog for more on her process and what inspires her.

Wendy Gold

Wendy Gold is an artist inspired by unique and unusual canvases. She first gained notoriety when she began decoupaging one-of-a-kind toilet seats and bathroom scales. Her work was instantly recognized for its originality and she quickly garnered a clientele including many celebrities.

Always looking for new inspiration, she stumbled across a beautiful antique globe at a flea market and immediately recognized her next canvas. In early 2010, she launched ImagineNations; and brought her unique brand of design to the canvas of world globes. By using recycled materials and vintage globes, she creates beautiful works of art, and brings a new touch of earthly responsibility to her work.

When not in her Bay Area studio, Wendy enjoys doing art projects with her daughter, scouring local flea markets, and putting her artistic touch to good use at home and wherever she goes. collection

    This item is beautiful and unique. I love how it looks like a regular map from a distance, and then the closer you get, it transforms into butterflies. Everyone that sees it wants to know where I got it.

              Comments about BUTTERFLY - WENDY GOLD:

              My Mom recently passed away and while my sister and I were sitting outside planning her funeral a yellow butterfly flew into her patio and hung around for quite sometime. Every day after that while we were at Mom's a yellow butterfly would show up and visit with us at least once each day. When I saw this I had to get it because we spread her ashes in a waterfall in North Carolina and my husband stated now she will flow into the river and eventually into the ocean and be able to travel the world! How fitting! So now each time we look at this beautiful picture we think of Mom on her everlasting travels!!

              This canvas picture was everything I hoped it to be. I was only disappointed in the creases of the canvas due to it rolled up for delivery. But I was able to iron, on on low from the back, the creases out!

                            It's pretty up close and then when you walk farther away it looks like an "almost regular" map. I love the way it changes as you get closer. In my opinion, it looks best hung in an area where you can approach it.
                            The only negative would be that it doesn't lie flat and it curls on the sides since there is no frame on the side.
