You sense India and the Far East, you perceive Lovecraft and Poe, you recognise the reptile-like textures, the leviathan-like sea monsters, the insect-like creatures, the lotus-inspired flowers and the pod-like plants.
You intuitively discern that there are also many other influences within the work of which you will never be aware of.

But, more than any of this, you understand at a deep level that once these diverse influences have been digested, processed and added to within the consciousness of such a talented artist as Claudia, that the resulting sculpture is unique and original - a piece in its own right.
In short, each item manifests itself as a genuine "claudia222 Jewel".
Claudia creates 3-dimensional worlds and invites you to enter.
By accepting her invitation, you agree to enter a world of curious fantasy and enquiring dreams, of ascent perfumed by a haunting fear, of memorable beauty tainted by a exquisite dread.
I visited two of Claudia's exhibitions:
I spent hours looking at these two exhibitions, on a number of different visits, and enjoyed every moment.
Each of the exhibitions has strange flying creatures that you can jump on board to travel.
It was fun exploring the very friendly and welcoming Hobo sim this way. Be sure to stop off at the circus tent to see the acrobatic elephant, the fearless rabbit and to pick up a free pair of stilts from Heb Dexler.
