Kirigami Mandala for an award winner
This is the kirigami papercut I recently cut as a commission for a person who won the Lambda award for Jewish writing. This is a combination cut (outer edge is a multicut and inner is a bifold.) It depicts two Jewish youths balancing on a tightrope, hanging the Lambda award. Stars of David are at the cardinal points. Stylized doves surround them. Between the birds are palm trees for California. A tree of life grows between the youths.
