Pattie Bibb, true to her custom of naming her art after puns or well known expressions, named this beautiful bunny ‘A Breath of Fresh Hare’. We call her Harriet.
Harriet measures 28” from her heels to the top of her head and 32 1/2” to the tip of her ears.
Harriet’s head, forearms, hands, feet and legs - up to her knees - are sculpted out of paper clay over a very astutely and softly wrapped frame This allows her to be perfectly free standing on her long skinny feet. So much more attractive and elegant than a stand.
Harriet has elegant feminine human hands and her forearms are covered in soft white mohair painstakingly and invisibly glued hair by hair. Her rabbit feet and legs are equally covered in soft white mohair as well as the exterior of her long ears and her décolleté.
Our hare’s features have been been softly painted in muted shades giving her a Dali-like surreal aura.
In stark contrast to the surreal image she has been daintily and expertly dressed in spring shades. The organza gingham over skirt has white embroidered sprigs with blue hand painted stylistic petals. She wears raspberry wild silk taffeta bloomers and slip under her peach silk dress. With a little persuasion she could clasp a lightweight Easter egg or bouquet between her hands and grace your Easter decoration!
This is one of my favorite Pattie Bibb pieces that we exhibited in our gallery. I kept her for my personal collection along with my Humpty Dumpty Easter Candy Container and Caterpillars. She has been carefully exhibited behind glass and away from any harsh lighting In a pristine smoke-free environment.
She comes signed and dated by Pattie under her costume that is partially sewn on as well as with a certificate of authenticity signed and dated by Pattie.
Should you wish for more photos or if you have any questions, we are more than happy to oblige.
Thank you so much for visiting our gallery. We hope that you will come again soon. We are constantly adding new items.
