This piece was created during the time Josefina was living at Santa Tattersall’s house in Ambleside. For the central support of the maquette she used the long bobbin from one of Santa’s cotton spools that she had for her dress-making. The two often discussed Santa’s ideas for projects to benefit others, and Josefina told her to use this one particularly to bring these ideas to fruition through a Charity (now the J de V Arts Care Trust, and Santa the Founder and Chairperson).
