Mother the Apprentice
Mother Earth reminds us of our responsibility to conserve our resources and tend our garden, especially our inner one, so she is able to bring forth life in abundant forms over and over every season. Here she stands in her hand-knit woolen dress (sometimes she is a bit tired of her trusty well-worn brown one, and sneaks into her other secret favorite colors), hand-knit shawl, doting on her creations. About 7 – 8” tall, with sculpted face and a firm cloth-covered wooden base.
In her younger years, she is eager to learn and widen her knowledge of the plant kingdom from hers elders, dressed in a hand-knit wool dress, her shawl in a chevron pattern knitted with kid mohair yarn, wool hair (crochet) and a little bun at her neck for hair. She stand firmly on a wooden base, covered with a woolen fabric, 2 1/2" diameter, 7" tall.
