Inspired by the Christmas tree, Hana made this multi-media piece of art. It was ‘for the Christmas tree’. Whether it should hang in the Christmas tree, stand before it, or be a Christmas tree in itself was not clear to me. (I banned it from the house out of fear that displaying it near the Christmas tree might lighten her enthusiasm and make her produce an entire line of this).
She spent a good tie hammering it together, adding bits and pieces of material; some glitter, a button, a ribbon, a sponge and a drawing of her and her mom with a big red hart (see inset).
