Reindeers remain the festive season's most well-loved animals. They are the magical navigators at the helm of Father Christmas's sleigh, and thus the bringers of gifts to all. So with childhood delight, we welcome a fine specimen of the herd to Burford.
Handwoven by Devon-based willow artist, Katherine Miles, in dense layers of natural willow, this wonderful creature is a statement piece for the garden and looks terrific all year round. Alas, it does not come bearing gifts, but will bring plenty of good tidings and joy for years to come.
Materials: Willow, steel core body and legs
Dimensions (approx.): H:170cm (max.), 100cm (to back); L:110 (max.); W:70 (max.)
Care: This sculpture has been treated with a linseed oil spray (50% linseed and 50% turpentine) using an ordinary hand-held plant sprayer so it can be easily sprayed to protect the sculpture thoroughly. If you wish to place the sculpture outdoors long term, it is recommended that this process is repeated a couple of times a year to maximise the longevity of the piece. With the correct care, this magnificent sculpture can be enjoyed for many years.
Note: Due to the use of natural materials, each sculpture is unique.
No assembly required.
