Mother Goose VI

Come Blow Your Horn (inspired by the 1744 “Mother Goose” nursery rhyme, Little Boy Blue) – Hand-distressed frame; hand-stained music pages; vintage blue glass Christmas horn with gilt tassels; genuine desiccated blue weevil; dried leaves; hay; dried Indian corn cob; rusted tacks; watercolours; salt; black paint; matte varnish; cardboard; colour print of antique Victorian postmortem carte de visite; colour print of grunge Victorian wallpaper

Little Boy Blue, come blow your horn
The sheeps in the meadow; the cows in the corn
Where is the boy who looks after the sheep?
He's under a haystack, fast asleep
