The Tortoise and the Hare
I have been focused on fairy tale and nursery rhyme characters for my nephew's ornaments. I was told he's been getting into Aesop's Fables this year including The Tortoise and the Hare and that idea stuck. The result:
This went so much easier than the Highlander ornament. The hardest part was getting the hare across the tortoise's back without making him look dead or flattening him out too much. I Googled "sleeping bunny" and looked at a lot of images before I found an idea I could work with. I thought it's a good look.
This one is not as intricate as some of my ornaments (although the shell took some work), but I always like my 3D pieces best. It makes me smile - so I know its good. :-)
