FAIRY WITH FLOWERS OF THE BURREN

This fairy was commissioned as a gift for a best friend.

My brief here was that the lady who was receiving this loved a place in Ireland called The Burren and the flowers found exclusively there.
For my overseas followers, this is an area in Co Clare on the beautiful Atlantic coast. The landscape is limestone and there are flowers and plants found only here. So, instead of having her hold a posy of these flowers,I decided to recreate the look of the Burren and have the fairy sitting on a piece of bog-oak representing the limestone rocks. Into this I "planted" some flowers and had her stopping to smell the flowers.

She would have stood at about 420mm
