Wedding presents for Mr. and Mrs. Jolie-Pitt! A source tells Us Weekly that Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie received a lot of new artwork as congratulatory gifts from friends after the couple married in a top-secret ceremony last month.
Some of the gifts sent to the newlyweds will help spruce up the walls and halls of their 1,200-acre Southern France estate, Chateau Miraval, where they wed. “They are building a large art collection at Miraval,” the source tells Us.
To congratulate the parents of six and help out with their massive interior design project, a close friend of Pitt’s gifted original paintings by British urban artist Dom Pattinson. (No relation to that other Pattinson, Robert.)
The prints which are from Pattinson’s “Hope” collection feature a young girl wearing a raincoat and holding the stem of a specific-colored flower. According to Urban Art experts Unlawful Art, the paintings represent looking ahead to one’s future rather than focusing on the past.
Pattinson told Unlawful Art that the little girl represents innocence, while her raincoat protects her from the occasional havoc of life. Meanwhile, the flower (available in the colors red, yellow, purple, and pink) stands for love, peace, and acceptance. The artist said his work was created from “particular moment in my life, but it allows the viewer to acknowledge something very personal to themselves.”
The source adds that the newlyweds also received a giant elephant statue, though the sender remains unknown.
After nine years together, Jolie, 39, and Pitt, 50, finally tied the knot on Aug. 23. After their ceremony, the family set out for Malta, where the A-listers are filming their new movie, By the Sea. As reported by Us Weekly, the wedding gifts followed the couple to the destination. A Malta source told Us that one room in the villas where they’re staying was devoted to housing the dozens of presents sent to the couple.
As for newlywed life? Brangelina told Hello! magazine, “It’s a wonderful feeling to be married.”
