Bigwig 189/8 Vase

Item Reduced Numbered Edition

Bigwig’s very name is cleverly used by Richard Adams to depict the honour of title. As you journey through the book, Bigwig and his strengths only become treasured when harnessed for the good of all. Firstly, as a member of the Owsla, Bigwig’s title, like any officer of rank, commanded obedience, but sadly, also fear. Yet it is only when Bigwig becomes part of something bigger than himself, a rabbit that defends his group almost to the death, that he truly becomes the substance of legend. His size and strength are carefully captured by Kerry Goodwin as he tears through the long, wild-grass of the natural world carefully designed by Emma Bossons FRSA. Dandelions, wild garlic and grasses are drawn in acute angles to represent his swiftness and dog-eared determination. If not held back by another rabbit, he would be spent on a worthless mission impossible. Fortunately for Bigwig, he is planted with Hazel, and is used to defeat evil personified. His yielding to the authority of another is represented by his attentive stature on the reverse on the vase, standing in sentry duty with ears raised and alert.
