"Everything beautiful brings her to mind. I see her in the yellow flowers that grow in the Meadow by my house. I see her in the mockingjays that sing in the trees."
~Katniss, on Rue in Catching Fire, book 2 of "The Hunger Games" trilogy
Any Hunger Games fan remembers the friendship that formed between Katniss and Rue, the little girl from District 11. We designed this wreath to honor the memory of Rue and the tragic beauty of the moment when Katniss sings Rue her lullaby.
During the 74th Annual Hunger Games, Rue decided to trust Katniss partly because of the pin she wore over her heart, the famous mockingjay pin. When Rue died in the games Katniss covered her in flowers and sang to her until she died. As a final goodbye, Katniss gave her the same farewell salute that the entire District 12 gave Katniss when she left for the Games, placing the three middle fingers of the left hand to her lips, then lifting her arm out toward Rue. The gesture was often used by the residents of District 12 at funerals, signifying respect and admiration.
This beautiful wreath adorned with flowers includes the lyrics of Rue's Lullaby, along with a handcrafted polymer clay mockingjay.
Measuring approximately 13 inches in diameter, this wreath would make a great gift for any fan of the series.
