lady in my fire

I made this figure a while ago and recently I found her buried in the fireplace. I am not sure how she got there but she reminded me of the victorian shoe we found as kids bricked into the fireplace in Saxtead. I imagine it was for good luck or superstition and was intended to keep the house safe and to ward of bad spirits. This is how I think about my figure and her baby bringing creativity to our home and holding a warm and precious space.
