Thoreau Star II

– Posted in: Digital Art Pentamorous Wordless Wednesday

“The stars are the jewels of the night, and perchance surpass anything which day has to show.”
– Henry David Thoreau (1817-1862)

Limited Time Promotion: Thoreau Star II Stretched Canvas Print

Throughout history, the five-pointed star has stood for excellence and spiritual ideals. This new series of designs is based on handmade kirigami (folded-&-cut paper) designs that have been colorized digitally.

I’ve seen this star before. Beautiful.

Have a terrific WW. 🙂

Thanks! A great WW to you as well.

Eric Edelman April 20, 2011, 12:39 am

Yes, you have. We re-posted it now because of the special offer; it’s a little changed in length and width, but otherwise the same subject.

Very cool. You are so talented. Happy WW!

It’s very striking, I’d love to know how to fold to make that cut.

Eric Edelman April 20, 2011, 12:33 am

Thanks for your interest! Within a year or so, I hope to publish a book on these fold-&-cut methods. When the book comes out, I’ll post an announcement on Art of RetroCollage.

While viewing your creation, I was warmed by it, literally. The Star has power to heal indeed. Thank you. Good work. You put your knowledge into the act and thus spread the wisdom of love. God bless you.

Thanks! Glad you like it. Your blog is always a delight!

The star just has this feel good calming effect doesn’t it – it’s the kind of thing I will put up on my partition at work – something to look at when the day starts getting on top of you…

Eric Edelman July 21, 2011, 6:00 pm

Thanks very much, Sarah — both for your visit and your kind words. Glad you like the star!

Sam Matthews August 30, 2011, 7:55 am

That’s one cool star. I really like how the black background enhances all the colors and patterns. Do you have any more stars like this one?

Eric Edelman August 31, 2011, 6:47 pm

Thanks for your kind words! Yes, I do have more star-themed artwork. You can find it at:

The star above really looks stunning. Lucky is the person who owns it. For sure, he or she will be the center of attraction.

Eric Edelman September 15, 2011, 2:46 am
