* Painting Complete - I think .....

She won't disclose her real name.  She tells me this one "Guardian of the Night" is a trick name and she wants me to guess.  We obviously will have to have chats.  I completed her with jewels as requested.  Some vintage garnets which I strung together and put bead caps on.  Two vintage brass scarabs hold them to her head piece. In ancient Egypt scarabs were used as a talisman and a symbol of the soul.  A small crown encrusted with rhinestones grace the ear which is visible.  The bells she requested around the lambs neck are East Indian dancing bells, the kind they wear on their wrists and ankles. 

Here she is "Who Knows Her Name" ... lol



Thank you so much for all your lovely comments and concerns.  Little by little, I will be back.  It will take some time to get back to my normal pace.  xxoo Donna
