  Pottery cicada, the emblem of Provence
by CatherineReichardt

It's most fitting that the cicada is the emblem of Provence, because its hypnotic screech provides the summer soundtrack for the region.

This little pottery cicada is my Avignon addition to the family Christmas tree - which is the embodiment of our family history and travel. I doubt that he was designed for this purpose, but it won't be the first - or last - time that a decorative item acquired on our travels has been similarly repurposed!
