The Autumn Empress Wood Bookmark features a doe wearing a headdress created with feathers, sunflowers, and a pumpkin. Each bookmark is made from 100% REAL Poplar Wood and is thin enough to fit easily between the pages of any book.
Story Behind the Drawing by Mackenzie: In the Blue Ridge Mountains, white-tailed deer celebrate the Autumn Equinox with the Feather Crowning Ceremony. The ceremony, held in late September, begins with a potluck dinner. Each family brings their favorite homemade food — berry pies, nut bread, and leafy salads. After dinner, one doe is crowned the “Autumn Empress,” an honorary title for a female deer who worked hard to help the ceremony come together. The Empress is crowned with a feather headdress, complete with beads and sunflowers. Finally, the deer finish off the evening with a dance around the campfire.
