FAIRY WITH TURQUOISE HAIR by artist Ulla Anobile
Hand stitched wool/rayon felt, sequins, polyfill
8 1/4" tall
The Fairy with Turquoise Hair repeatedly appears at critical moments in Pinocchio's wanderings to admonish the little wooden puppet to avoid bad or risky behavior. Although the naïvely willful marionette initially resists her good advice, he later comes to follow her instruction. She in turn protects him, and later enables his assumption of human form, contrary to the prior wooden form.
