moon girl - the hare
One of my favourite pastimes is moon viewing - I never tire of her and her ever changing appearance. I also love to star gaze, and read books about the planets and the constellations. This girl is dressed up with the hare constellation, as it is the Year of the Rabbit in 2023.
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. She has been finished in a top coat of matt acrylic.
A note about 'Wood Girls'
My wooden girls are turned from Tulipwood by a production turner and then 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.
Stamped on the base with a roaring bear in blue ink.
Approximately 20cm high.
Please note: THIS IS NOT A TOY and should be kept out of the reach of children.
