Peter Pan - Original Papercut Art - tina tarnoff: This is an original Papercut, an art form in which an entire image is hand-cut from a single sheet of paper. The artwork is mounted on beautiful, Indian cotton rag paper, then displayed on a sturdy 11" x 14" black mat. It's ready to be placed into a frame, if so desired. Each piece includes a unique certificate of authenticity. This is an original artwork, not a print. Each piece is entirely handmade, signed and dated. Due to the handcrafted nature of this artwork, each piece may have subtle differences. The mounted artwork comes in a protective, archival-quality, cellophane sleeve and will be shipped to you with the utmost care. "Peter Pan" is also available in black and white wood frames with glass fronts - see under my framing service offer.

Wendy House

Wendy House: A Wendy house is small play house for children. It is big enough for one or more children to go into and should not be confused with a doll's house. Size and solidity can vary from a toddler-high cheap and cheerful plastic kit to something resembling a small garden shed. Usually there is one room, a doorway with a window on either side and little or no furniture other than that which the children improvise. The original was built for Wendy Darling in J. M.

Wendy was shot by the Lost Boy Tootles after arriving in Neverland, so Peter Pan and the Lost Boys built a small house around her where she had fallen. It was inspired by the wash-house behind Barrie's childhood home in Kirriemuir and first appeared in story form in The Little White Bird in which fairies build a house around Mamie Mannering — the prototype for Wendy — so protecting her from the cold. A prop house was created by Barrie for the first stage production of the play in 1904. It was constructed like a tent so that it could be erected quickly during a song which Wendy starts with “ I wish I had a darling house The littlest ever seen, With funny little red walls And roof of mossy green.” John's hat was used as a chimney and a slipper was used as a door knocker.
