This is another commissioned art piece, the fairy that shifts into part of the tree when a predator is near. She is like the octopus in how well she blends with her surroundings and exudes the magic of practical creativity.
Her bodice is made of birch, the symbol of white, meaning change. I hand-painted her colors of a tree I once found in western Maine, swirling with forest and spring greens and yellows. Her corsage is a bit of tree lichen that looks like mini trumpets.
Her skirt is made with different clumps of reindeer moss and adorned with a spidery Spanish moss.
I can custom make these for $25 and they are easy to ship anywhere in the U.S. Contact me if interested.
