A poetic prison is the thornbird’s destiny till he can grow a thicker skin over his sentimental heart.

The accompanying booklet reads:

"A sentimental prison for the lovesick heart
is a space one may need to embrace.
A place where you go
to have thicker skin grow
on the heart when your love's been replaced."

This doll was originally part of the Thornbirz series.

Based on a mythical creature, the Thornbird lives its life in fierce pursuit of a thorntree. It leaves its nest & does not rest until it has fulfilled its quest.

Silent its entire life until the final hour when it finds the perfect thorn then impales itself. The very first song it sings comes flowing from its heart before dying among the thorns.
