Bringing in the May

A tiny one off bronze. I have made several bronze sculptures which feature hybrid forms, women and animals sharing the same body. This little piece was inspired by my Mothers’ superstition regarding hawthorne blossom. As children we were forbid from picking it and heaven forbid bringing it into the house! I have a feeling that this superstition might have stemmed from pagan traditions and from a time when hares were believed to be sacred and closely linked to femininity. My little figure sits finishing off the embroidery that I began, stitching with her golden needle and ‘bringing in the may’.

Day 13. Garden. What would I do right now without my happy place? My humble little slice of green, a pond, a winding path, spring flowers and birds, so many birds including a visit from a beautiful bullfinch today! πŸ’š Hope you are all safe and well wherever you are!!πŸ’š #medicinewheel #garden #gardening #lockdown2020 #embroidery #slowstitch #slowstitching #sewing
