I made this for someone and then decided that he was so very cool that I had to keep him for myself a while longer.  There are other birthday presents to be had!  lol  *shame*  Without any further adieu, here is Magellan!

I love the expression I gave him.  Kinda hard to see with the wand in his mouth though.

The WINGS!  not my favorite part but still pretty cool if I do say so myself.

Metal plating.  The screws are polymer clay with mica powder.  Don't they look real?

The "peaking over the shoulder" pose.  Aren't I cute?

I'm thinking he needs friends.  Considering Columbus, Sacagawea, Ponce de Leon, and Cousteau.  Not sure why I picked explorers.  But I think its going to be fun!

Questions and comments welcome!  Smiley

That seems like a difficult sculpture, to work around the jar like that!  I especially like his little smile.  Smiley

Thanks everyone!  He was a lot of fun to make.  That's why I'm thinking about giving him friends.  Smiley
