Artist's notes on style, materials and inspiration:

This turned Tulipwood girl was made to celebrate the Year of the Rabbit in the animal zodiac - the year began on 22nd January 2023 (Chinese New Year) and ends on 9th February 2024. Her decoration is inspired by the iconic flowers of the wild cherry, a sight so welcome after the long winter.

Rabbits are the fourth animal in the zodiac - they are associated with longevity, peace and prosperity, and as such, 2023 is predicted to be a year of hope. They are vigilant, tender, witty, quick-thinkers; both modest and ingenious. However they can be conservative, overly sentimental and hesitant in character - they will often lead a peaceful and smooth life but can become bored at tediousness. Lucky numbers for rabbits are 3, 4 and 6, and lucky colours are pink, red, purple and blue.

A note about 'Wood Girls'

My wood girls are turned by a production turner to my designs and then added to and hand painted in the U.K. by me, a British artist, exploring patterns and scenes encountered by me on my travels and in daily life. My pieces are painted in a naïve and simple style, with visible brush strokes and differing paint consistencies. It is important to note that these dolls are made from real wood which will have naturally occurring markings and grain, and sometimes there will be small amount of bleeding along the grain, or knots, which is to be expected when using untreated wood - please make sure you consult the pictures carefully before purchasing.

Hand painted and finished in a matt acrylic protective top coat.
Stamped underneath with roaring bear logo in blue ink, signed and dated 2023.
Approximately 35cm high.

Please note: THIS IS NOT A TOY and should be kept out of the reach of children. Wood girls should be kept away from water which can damage the wood and painted surface, and also away from direct heat/ sunlight which also can affect the surface colour and the timber itself.
