A set of 6 seasonal cards depicting a little Wren/ Dreoilín amongst winter foliage in Sonia's typical botanical illustrative style. 

The Wren is associated with St. Stephens day celebrations in Ireland and there are several traditional folk tales that display it as being a trickster. This rhyme below is one of several versions sung by wren boys on St Stephens day.

The Wran, the king of all birds. On Stephens Day I was caught in the furze. Although I am little my family is great, Rise up landlady and give us a trate. Up with the kettle and down with the pan, Give a few pence to bury the Wran. Then I'll dip my mings in a barrel of beer, And I'll wish you all a happy New Year.

The above is printed on the back of the card which measures 215mm x 105mm and is left blank inside for your own seasonal message.
