The Fairy with Turquoise Hair was a key character in Italian writer Carlo Collodi's 1883 book The Adventures of Pinocchio. For some reason Disney decided to give her blonde hair with a blue dress in Pinocchio (1940). My personal favorite version of the Blue Fairy was in Steven Spielberg's 2001 movie A.I.: Artificial Intelligence (2001). The scene with her at the end of the film makes me choke up every time. I originally intended to make a faithful reproduction of the Cony Island sculpture from the film, but decided on my original take. My thanks again to the Ceramic Art Studio and Shop.
