'Sunrise in the Valley' by Marcelo Tonon Chiovatto took one of the top spots in the 2013 IAPLC and showcases a dramatic craftwork with an illuminated central background and waterfall scene. Strong shadows in the fore and mid-ground add depth and complexity to this impressive aquascape and conveys the mood of twilight highlighted in the title. In the tradition of Brazilian-style dioramas, the aquascape uses colourful stem plants to add richness and texture to the otherwise green landscape. Read more about this aquascape here.
