Drawing Challenge :: My favourite object
I had to really examine the criteria I would use to help me decide.
So I settled on these 3 questions:
1. What object have you kept close by you for more than 5 years? (that got the numbers down)
2. What object do you have emotional attachment too? (reduced it down to 3)
3. What object has aesthetic appeal as well as the above? (finally the one!)
My clay horse
This is a clay horse my daughter made for me when she was 7. She is now in her 20's and this little horse has travelled with me through many houses, relationships, across the sea and back again. It has a special travelling box an old bakers flour box filled with shredded paper and a sign that says "fragile be careful!". If it has to be moved it goes in the special moving box that sits on my lap that noone else is allowed to carry.
My husband knows he can look at it but not touch it. Ridiculous right? even as I write this I think its ridiculous but it really would break my heart if it got broken. I just love the restful pose and muscled form, and the bisqued clay not only because my daughter made it for me but because I really enjoy looking at it and it sits on my mantlepiece where I can see it.
