A mother cradling her tiny child in the warm nest of her wool shawl. A beautiful, organic depiction of new life beginning to thrive like a well-nurtured plant seed.

Every aspect of this magical pair has been lovingly crafted with exquisite detail. The heads and hands are sculpted from Paperclay, painted with many layers of watercolor and sealed with matte varnish, which lends a slight luster and protects the paper mache from moisture. A sturdy armature is built of wood and wire wrapped in natural cotton batting. The dress is hand-felted by the artist and the shawl is hand spun by the artist from local wool. The baby's hat has been hand-spun and hand dyed with plant dyes by the artist, the green yarn of the bunting was purchased on the Isle of Skye, Scotland from a woman who also dyes her own wool with plants. The subtle, natural variation created by hand-working the wool lends a beautiful, organic feeling to the piece. This is a work of art built to become a treasured heirloom.

The sculpture stands 23 " tall on a custom cut, cherry stained pedestal, signed by the artist.
