Grandfather Tree

A new style of reconfigured figurine I made for Mina's store, this wooden figure has had his broken off hands replaced with twigs. Jasmine is hosting Festival of the Trees this May Day on Nature's Whispers.

I'm strangely reminded of reading about a production of Titus Andronicus in which (I think her name is ) Lavinia's severed hands are represented onstage as red streamers (hanging, I guess, from her sleeves).

Wait! I just noticed Kaetlyn's comment! Never mind! ;-)
