Ring-a-ring o’ roses,
A pocket full of posies,
A-tishoo! A-tishoo!
We all fall down.

It is unknown what the earliest version of the rhyme was or when it began. Many incarnations of the game have a group of children form a ring, dance in a circle around a person, and stoop or curtsy with the final line. The slowest child to do so is faced with a penalty or becomes the “rosie” (literally: rose tree, from the French rosier) and takes their place in the center of the ring.

Wire – frame, mixed media (paper and plaster), rust oxidisation paint finish.

Dome Height: 22cm Diameter: 20cm
