《My Mother’s Garden》inspired from the insect-themed jewelry designed by Victoire de Castellane, is a commissioned work by Dior. In the work, insect-themed jewelry sparkle with eerie charm in a jungle that is almost suffocating in its greenness. It may be about superstition or illusions in a modern society founded on empirical science or perhaps a presentation of economic progress in his motherland and the devastation of his homeland in North Thailand.
