And here is my artwork featured in the show:

Kleiner Onkel, shrine, approx.5.5x7x3.5cm

back view

This shrine is inspired by one of my favourite children's TV programmes, Pippi Langstrumpf, when I was a little girl, growing up in Germany. The story created by the famous Swedish author Astrid Lindgren, was made into a popular TV series. In its German version, Pippi's horse was called Kleiner Onkel.
