Handcrafted corn-shuck figure by Anne Freels of Clinton, Tennessee.
Anne's love of the natural world around her inspires her creations, whether it's in the materials she uses, or in the message behind each piece. Rebecca, the Rose Herbal Lady, is dressed a long black skirt, her light brown woolen hair is braided down her back. She carries a sack of her precious dried roses.
Anne writes on Rebecca's tag: "Associated with pure love and femininity, the rose is valued by aromatherapists for its rejuvenating qualities. Dried petals retain their scent, rosewater revives tired eyes, and fresh petals can be used for decoration. Rebecca prefers the buds."
Handmade with natural hand-dyed corn-shucks, wool fleece, and dried rosebuds.
Approximately 10 1/4 inches tall.
Artist statement included.
