Merritt and Fay Hooked Rug

Merritt and Fay Hooked Rug


Merritt (dog) and Fay (bird) — this is a continuation of my theme of presenting a friendship, sometimes between a horse or pony and a bird, sometimes a rabbit and a bird. It’s a common folk art idea — a bird that is bigger than it would be in real life perched on the back of another animal. It’s all about getting along, and being helpful. And having a good time! This mat has another historical reference — the small, bright bush in front of Merritt, smaller than it might be in reality, and offering a picture into the space the animals find themselves in.
