Mother the Nurturer
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.
This mother is nurturing her baby (hand knit also), her woolen shawl is hand-knit in a chevron pattern, her dress also hand-knit in wool, mohair hair with a bun at the neck. She stand firmly on a wooden base, covered with a woolen fabric, 2 1/2" diameter, ~7" tall.
