Art figure and bird Wire and Paper Sculpture. Florine The Bluebird. by MesssieJessie

Art figure and bird Wire and Paper Sculpture.  Florine The Bluebird. by MesssieJessie

115.00 GBP

Art figure and bird. Wire and Paper Sculpture – 43cm high, 40cm wide and 36cm deep.

Inspired by the French fairy tale "The Bluebird" by Madame d'Aulnoy.

A small ballet style figurine constructed from wire and papier mache. Inspired by the french fairy story "The Bluebird". The princess Florine kneels down to the Bluebird which is really her prince who is under a wicked spell.
She has been papier mached to a base. The dress is made from a vintage fabric and adorned with costume jewelery. The back of the dress has a large bow..The hair is shaped from a cotton and adorned with beads.
The bird has been papier mached and attached to the base.

I've kept the figure very simple, the emphasis given to the gesture of the pose, the tilt of her back and her toes peeping from under her dress which gives a vulnerability. I like my figures to only give a hint of who they are.

Lovingly packaged.

Any questions just convo me.
