This geometric print features layers of folded paper. The bottom-most layer is a square whose lower left corner has been folded diagonally in a pleat, creating the effect of a triangle. Four successive triangular layers of folded white paper cascade over top, echoing the initial triangular form. The underside of the triangular layers is coloured in deep shades of blue, brown, green, red and grey. These colours are revealed in narrow pointed bands on the outer edges of these folded forms.

SUN DOGS are fragments of bright, rainbow-coloured light visible on both sides of the sun when it is low in the sky. When you see them, expect rain or snow.
