Here is my interpretation of the popular Prinn pattern, Maiden. Made it for my sister, because it reminds me of her: a proud spirit of rugged and rebellious individualism. It even looks like her. Approximately 13” x 22” and made from 58 pieces. Hair is walnut; skin is mahogany; dress is hickory; war paint and feather spines are aspen; hair braid is merbau; feathers are zebrawood; lips and eyes are aromatic cedar. I had a lot of fun with this one.
