" Like scratchings on an etching plate revealing the lighter imprint - to be inked off again in one continuous flow."
Peonies meanings include prosperity, good fortune, beauty, joy and eternal love - now forever on the blockchains.
These PEONY iterations are an experiment in minting on different chains, platforms & contracts.
Minted in editions of 2022 - the year the PEONIES launched - of which 50% are open for buyers on chains & 50% are held for use in onboarding sessions. By buying available editions you support NFT onboarding :)
An edition costs 1 XTZ or 0.001 ETH - which is roughly 1 to 1,5 euro/dollar per NFT.
All iterations will be merged into 1 animated pattern in 2023 which will be free to collect for those that have acquired all 2022 PEONIES on all chains & contracts before January 1st 2023.
Creating a small edition fee + big edition volume creates a low entry to support an artist. It is almost like giving a 'like' - only now with a small financial reward attached. And the collector gets art in return, that they now own & can use.
People generally prefer very limited editions as they are more 'rare'. But issuing higher editions makes that more people get to enjoy the use of an artwork.
For artists, these smaller fees in high volume are a great way to receive a bigger total fee on an artwork.
Also it creates a connection with many collectors - which can be a basis for building their own ecosystem.
