Griselda, the Rabbit Bride, 30cmsx40cms, Oil on canvas

From now on I'm giving my figurines names. "The Rabbit's Bride" is a short story by the Brothers Grimm about how a rabbit tried to force a maiden to be his bride, only for her to trick him and run away. I thought the name Griselda suited her, though in other folklore it's associated with being a faithful wife.
