Admiring Tiepolo and the beautiful tent behind the figure of Asia traveling to Europe on the Wurzburg fresco, it occurred to me the Magi must have traveled with tents.  So, my cartonnage tent originated as a Christmas piece.  Charmed and not wanting to put it away, I turned to tent follies which also represented different continents and historical eras.  I chose the Haga Park style because its designer, Luis Jean Deprez, was a French painter and architect who traveled frequently to Italy and I am an American artist who works with Italian paper.   I imagine that Deprez may have admired Tiepolo's work too.
