Artwork description: 
This is one of the few toy flowers based on real plants. I came across the folklore tale of fairies sleeping in the petals of anemone flowers at night, so I placed a fairy from my dolls' house alongside the Flower Play anemone for her to sleep in. She was a particular favourite of mine because I could re-shape her wings, she had a lovely embroidered skirt and her blue hair was iridescent (which I managed to capture with ink).
