100.00 GBP

Wire and papier mache Sculpture – Donkey Skin RESERVED FOR gaelle LASBOUYGUES

Final payment.

The figure is made from wire and papier mache. Her colours have been kept natural and neutral. Her hair is made from a soft neutral light colored silk embroidery thread. The donkey cape is made from faux fur and is fully lined from a soft pale champagne lining. Her dress is made from a child's white cotton dress.

Once upon a time there was a king so great, so loved by his people and so respected by neighboring kingdoms that he was the happiest of monarchs. And his happiness was even greater for having chosen a beautiful and virtuous wife. The couple lived in perfect harmony. They had a daughter of such grace and charm that they never regretted having but one child. Their palace was a marvel of taste and abundance. The buildings were magnificent and the vast stables were filled with the most handsome steeds. But what most surprised visitors was a donkey displayed in the most prominent place. This iniquity may surprise you, but when you learn of the creature's rare ability, you will agree that this honor was its due.
