Botticelli Birth of Venus

Here in Crick we have an annual Scarecrow Weekend in mid July.  This is the fourth year it has been held and the quality of scarecrows produced by villagers is improving and becoming so much more ambitious.

This is our ‘art-themed’ offering – Birth of Venus, complete with shell and wild grass for hair.  She is made from chicken wire that is covered in glue and paper, then painted and adorned (I even managed to add a pink ring to one of her fingers!)

Because the subject of our scarecrow was inspired from such a magnificent painting, we ordered products to sell in the shop such as postcards, notelets, cards and tote bags.
