Cast in the finest bronze resin before being painstakingly hand-painted, this beautiful figurine by fantasy artist Ruth Thompson, shows a guardian of the forest. The figure is wearing green trousers, held in place with a golden belt and a fur cape draped over his back. The figure has majestic antlers emerging from beneath his long plaited hair. In his left hand, he cradles a small fox, and in his right, he holds a sprig of holly. Around his feet, a wolf rests as a large Raven takes to the sky from behind his head. 27cms 10.5 inches tall.
On the back of the figurine, the quote reads:
"To the Garden, the World, anew ascending, potent mates, daughters, sons, preluding the love, the life of their bodies, meaning and being, curious, here behold my resurrection, after slumber; the revolving cycles, in their wide sweep, have brought me again, amourous, mature- all beautiful to me- all wondrous; my limbs, and the quivering fire that ever plays through them, for reasons, most wondrous; existing, i peer and penetrate still, content with the present- content with the past, by my side, or back of me, eve following, or in front, and I following her just the same. -Walt Whitman-
