Promise me youll always remember:
Youre braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem and smarter than you think.
Chistopher Robin to Pooh
-A.A. Milne
Her head is made out of the end of an old sock darner, her body from a wooden toy part, her stand is off an old Bunsen burner, her arms are old electrical wire and her message is housed in one of the lenses off vintage welding goggles backed with an old gear.
Promise me youll always remember:
Youre braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem and smarter than you think.
Chistopher Robin to Pooh
-A.A. Milne

"Promise me you'll always remember:

You're braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem and smarter than you think."

Chistopher Robin to Pooh

-A.A. Milne


 

This is one of my favorite A.A. Milne quotes and I wanted the girl in the sculpture to embody it by holding the key to the promise to herself.

She's not for sale but I could create another piece similar in style and in metaphor if you'd like. Please email me at jenny.kompolt@gmail.com if you'd like to chat more. And thank you again!

I just had to write you again. I can't get this piece
out of my head. Love it so much, I came back to give it
another look see. I just can't get over the quote. If it was for sale, I would have to have it.

Be well
