The Little Things Scupltures

A Little Clean Up

We all know the importance of keeping our environment clean. But sometimes, it can be tough to know where to start. These two environmentally friendly characters are here to teach us the importance of keeping our planet clean. Rabbitwoman is all about reducing, reusing, and recycling. She knows that the little things can make a big difference when it comes to taking care of our planet. 

A Little Step at a Time

Rabbitwoman and Dogman knew that the only way forward was one step at a time. There were no shortcuts, but that was ok! Rather than stressing about getting to places and doing things quickly, they relaxed into the process, enjoying the journey and knowing they will get there in the end.

A Little Care for Others

Rabbitwoman and Dogman deeply care about all living things. One day they discovered a nest with a lonely little egg. The mother had unfortunately moved on, leaving the little egg unprotected. Rabbitwoman and Dogman knew what they had to do. Climbing into the nest they became adoptive parents. Keeping the egg warm between them gave them a rush of love. They could make a world of difference for this baby. Their reward was seeing a new, happy life come into this world. 

A Little More Hope

Rabbitwoman and Dogman are constant optimists. They see every silver lining and believe there is always hope. No matter how bad things may seem, there is always a way to make your way through the clouds and be lifted into the sunlight. As the lovers float upward they spread the message of hope and love to everyone around them. There is always room for a little more hope

A Little Love for Friends

One of the best things about having friends is that they are always there for you, no matter what. They are the ones you can rely on when you need a shoulder to cry on or someone to just listen to. They are the ones who make you laugh when you don't even want to smile. Sometimes, all they need is a little love. Just a simple act of kindness can make their day. Just a small gesture to let them know that you care. Rabbitwoman and Dogman always make the time to show their friends how much they mean to them.

A Little Eco Ride 

Rabbitwoman and Dogman are eco-warriors and one thing they are very conscious of is their travel footprint. They have been searching for the perfect way to cut down on their emissions while also being able to go on all the adventures they’re constantly dreaming of. They believe they’ve found the answer. A skateboard. Not only is it portable, speedy, and very versatile, they’ve even found a way to go together. Being environmentally friendly has never been more fun.

A Little Time Together

Rabbitwoman and Dogman never needed an excuse to spend a little time together. They couldn’t get enough of it. They would go on grand adventures, share a special meal, or work on an exciting project. But sometimes the nicest moments were the quiet ones. Sitting on a bench with their arms around each other they watch the world go by. Sometimes they might chat, but mostly they breathe in the moment, embracing the serenity of each other's presence. It’s these little moments together that they love the most.

A little re-cycle

Rabbitwoman and Dogman love the concept of recycling. They think it’s incredible that one item can be transformed into another, again and again, keeping the materials in circulation. They always make sure to carefully separate their general waste, paper, glass, and plastics, ready for the new life ahead. They hope they can get everyone as excited about recycling as they are, or at least convince them of its importance.

A little time to play ball

Rabbitwoman and Dogman love to play games. They had always enjoyed basketball, but today they have decided to use the ball for a brand new game. They love making up games. They think it helps with creativity, learning to think outside the conventional boxes to see new alternatives. By coming up with these made-up games they found their day-to-day problem-solving skills had improved a lot. Rabbitwoman and Dogman believe everyone should always make time to play games.

A little help from friends

Friends are the family we get to choose. Rabbitwoman and Dogman believe it’s one of the most special connections in the world. They treasure their friends and are always there for them, no matter what. They cheer them on, heal their wounds, and help them to fly. And in return, they have the greatest love and support that makes everything worthwhile. They know that we get by with a little help from our friends.

A little tidy up

One of the greatest issues facing the world today is waste. Rubbish has made its way into every corner, even the deepest part of the ocean. Rabbitwoman and Dogman have decided to do something about it. They have been talking to as many people as possible about the importance of treating our beautiful planet with respect. But they’re also getting their hands dirty and having a little tidy up. If we all lend a hand we can get this planet cleaned up. Grab a brush and shovel and we’ll do it together!

A little home time with friends

There’s nothing quite like a quiet night in with the ones you love. Rabbitwoman and Dogman love these evenings, sitting in peace with each other and whichever of their friends has popped in. Their home is their little sanctuary. It’s not big or lavish, but it’s theirs and theirs to share. To them, a little house full of love is greater than the largest mansion.

A little gift of love

Rabbitwoman and Dogman were always looking for ways to share how much they loved each other. They enjoyed grand gestures, but sometimes a little unexpected token was the most romantic. Today as Dogman was walking home he spotted the most beautiful rose. As he passed it to Rabbitwoman the words of his love were imprinted across its petals and imbued in the scent. With this little gift of love, Rabbitwoman’s day was made.

A little community support

A happy community is a supportive one. Rabbitwoman and Dogman felt so lucky to live where they did. In their town, everyone was supported, everyone was heard, and everyone was equal. When somebody needed help, help was never far away. When someone had an idea, everyone gave the time to listen and consider it. They all agreed, a supportive community was the key to a happy town.

A little snap of happiness

Rabbitwoman and Dogman know how precious photographs can be. They love spending hours flicking through albums of past adventures, reminiscing about happy times. They capture every moment, searching for that perfect angle that encapsulates the exact emotion, celebrating the exciting and still moments as equals. Today they’re here to give you that little snap of happiness. Now you will always be able to look back on this little moment and feel the same smile come back to you.

A Little Greener

Rabbitwoman and Dogman are on a mission. One seed at a time they are changing their world. The planet has been transformed from lush, diverse flora to a concrete jungle. Ecosystems are disappearing and the world is becoming more polluted. But there’s still time to fix things! Rabbitwoman and Dogman are rewilding the world. They are planting a diversity of flowers, trees, and shrubs. They are working to care for and protect the remaining wild spaces. They are working together to make the world a little greener and a lot healthier. Will you join their mission?

A little hand up

Sometimes the only way to get somewhere is with a hand up. We can climb to the highest heights and reach our greatest potential if we have support from those around us. Rabbitwoman and Dogman are always there to give each other a hand. They discovered how important it was, not only so they could get places, but so they had someone to enjoy the magic with when they got there. 

A little climb to the top

Getting to the top can be hard. It’s long and exhausting but Rabbitwoman and Dogman know that it’s worth it. All of that effort is always rewarded, whether it be a new chapter in their life or just a brand new adventure. They were up for any climb! As Rabbitwoman looks through the manhole she calls down to Dogman. “You were right, it’s magnificent here!”

A little surprise friendship

Friends can come from the most unlikely places. Through their travels, Rabbitwoman and Dogman have made friends with the most diverse characters. Today’s new friend really took them by surprise. They had met elephants before, but never one so nimble as to sit high up a tree! They jumped at the opportunity to meet her, learning of her fascinating past as a circus performer and the joy when she escaped. As they dangled their legs side by side they sang for friends and freedom

A little helping hand

Everyone has a time in their life when they could do with a helping hand. For elephants, that time is now. All elephant species are threatened by extinction, brought on by habitat loss, human-wildlife conflict, climate change, and poachers. They are struggling. Rabbitwoman and Dogman can’t imagine a world without these iconic creatures. They refuse to sit back and do nothing. Using all their strength, they heave, lifting the elephant up to safety. Will you give them a helping hand?
