A Golden Pear

Deborah Saunders

Made from found beaded fabric and ribbon then further embellished with sequins and beads from artists own collection.
200 x 300 x 200 mm

Inspired by the childhood rhyme:

I had a little nut tree,

Nothing would it bear,

But a silver nutmeg And a golden pear.

The King of Spain's Daughter

Came to visit me.

All for the sake of my

Little Nut Tree.
