Close-Up of Belt Buckle | Angled Close-Up of Belt Buckle
Elizabeth ordered this trophy-style buckle for her husband. She wanted to give him the Undergrowth buckle, but as it turned out, her husband is one of the few people who wears his belt the other way than the majority, so Neil ended up making a new buckle for him. As the "Undergrowth", it depicts a close-up scene of vegetation. There is a bee at the top, left and a frog at the bottom, right. The vegetation below the gold band is heavier, larger leafed, dark undergrowth. The leaves here are beautifully shaded creating a more three-dimensional rendering. The lighter, yet more prolific scrolls and leaves above the band indicate the lighter feel of a canopy that actually reaches the life-giving rays of the sun.
This is one of Neil's asymmetric designs. The base of the scrolls is off center, and the deeply sculpted flower stalk starts there. The rhythmic repetition of the border in the gold band works as a surprising, symmetrical counterpoint.
Neil used his hinged bail for this trophy-style buckle. He likes this because it makes the belt easier to put on and very comfortable to wear.
