My mother and I met this artist and asked her if she ever fashioned fable characters. She asked us to return to the next craft fair with a book of fables from which she could work. At each fair over the next several years, she kept bringing for us a new one-of-a-kind character. Here the tortoise has the fable-book open to the moral.
