SOLD. Welcome Hope. 26" wide x 31" long.The Covid-19 virus kept many of us apart but in the Australian Reptile Park in 2020 a friendship was born. The park was shut down for months and keepers thought the younger animals might be lonely, especially Elsa, a rescued koala being hand raised at the zoo, so they put Hope, a young wombat who was also being hand raised, into the koala enclosure. The wombat is a close relative of the koala but the wombat lives on the ground and the koala prefers life in the trees. The marsupials eat different food and they seem to enjoy hanging out together, always greeting each other with a kiss. A video of the pair nuzzling was shared on the park’s Facebook page and the “lockdown BFF’s” became known around the world. Fabrics from Australia; batiks and Cherrywood solids; cork fabric; cotton, silk and metallic threads.
