Bambi eat your heart out! Well I walked a tightrope with this one. I wanted to add a fawn to my collection but wanted to steer clear enough of the Bambi Factor but be able to wiff a bit of the 1926 films charm and cuteness, Reckon I pulled it off? Those eyes are a little larger than they should be! Those ears are cute, but again a little oversized! Big ears! Big eyes!
I also wanted a wiff off the Greek Goddess Diana,the huntress. She has often been dipicted with a deer on roman and greek representations of her. She had the the power to talk to and control animals. In almost all sculpture I have seen of her she looks lean and flighty.
I kept to my art deco-ish design ethos and distilled the shape to a simple one that was dynamic, well I think so! Those ears spoil the streamlining though! don’t you think?
Below is the painting in progress.

One of the most recognisable songbirds in the garden is the plucky Robin. Being a member of the thrush family, it’s not only cousin to the song thrush and blackbird, but also to the nightingale, so it’s no surprise that the robin has a beautiful voice as well.
The earliest depictions of the use of the heart symbol is believed to derive from the ancient culture of Cyrene, a North African city which was founded by the Greeks in 631 BC, and then later ruled by the Romans.
There’s a lot of ancient mythical beasts which seem pretty isolated, unique to a country’s culture, or even to a specific region. Others, like mermaids, dragons, and giants, are intercultural, being known by many. The Phoenix is one of these mythical superstars, and was known by the Greeks, the Romans, the Egyptians, and even by the Chinese.
