Fireflies. In ancient Amazonian mythology, firefly light came from the gods and provided hope and guidance. There’s a Japanese legend that lightning bugs are actually the souls of the dead. Variations on the tale say that they’re the spirits of warriors who fell in battle. In only two places in the entire world, there’s a phenomenon known as simultaneous bioluminescence. That means that all the fireflies in the area sync up their flashes, so all they light up at exactly the same time, repeatedly, all night long. The only places you can actually see this happen are Southeast Asia and the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. This piece brings Bioluminescence into your room. One of a kind. Diameter 23cm. This is a wall decoration item, one of a kind. Woolen and acrylic yarn as well as luminescence thread were used on a 100% cotton natural white heavy canvas. Watercolor and acrylic paints were used. Please do not wash, but in order to clean and dust your hoop just use a lint/dust roller suitable for clothing.
