Little Cloud by FriendsWithYou 11 x 14 inches Strathmore Impress Pure Cotton Wove Paper Dome (Rounded) Embossed Cloud Limited Edition of 500 This special edition print commemorates one of our biggest dreams come to life as Little Cloud makes its biggest debut to the world yet, as part of the Macys Thanksgiving Day Parade. Our Little Cloud is a symbol of light.
It floats effortlessly off the paper as these prints include an embossed fluffy cloud that literally lifts into a gentle relief. The Cloud has been a symbolic icon of FriendsWithYous work since the beginning. To us, the Cloud represents a key illustration of our mission.
It is a symbol with the power to transcend the viewer to a relaxed and joyous state, revealing that everything in our world has a soul and a purpose - as spiritual essence. This animist perspective reflects in our work as a sweet visual soundscape, casting a positive message of happiness and connectivity. The Native Americans believed that the clouds were the Gods who watched over them and their livelihoods.
Bringing this print to life invokes a continuation into the proliferation of healing art objects. Combining movement with the symbol of a cloud is our way of making everyone who encounters it instantly happy on a day-to-day basis.See All Items For Sale.
