Spring Bok

My mother's old Jul Bok was sitting in the garage with its dusty red ribbon, so I decided to spruce it up for a fresh new look for the season. With a bright turquoise ribbon she now sits pretty but is no longer a Jul Bok....
She is a Spring Bok.
I can imagine her decorated with pink paper flowers and maybe some colored eggs hanging from her horns for Easter. That's something I will work on. But for now, she needs a partner. Since I don't have a male, I made this bearded illustrated version for her.
Have a Happy Spring Break/ Spring Bok?
