 I made this Doll this week to give as a gift to my Good friend and Zen Teacher Zen Master Pohwa Sunim for our Celebration this weekend.
I'm thinking of making a series of them for a festival in the fall.
All the fibers came from the sheep off my In laws farm.
Many Smiles to all!

He's gorgeous! I love the fact that you didn't give him a face, and left his robe sleeves loosely felted. I think it showcases the wool very nicely.

 Thank you very much.
I kept everything simple and really enjoyed making him. Normally I am always hand dyeing the wool, this is my first project keeping everything au naturale.

Wonderful work.  You have such a distinctive and intriguing style.  I really really like your work.  I get a sense of spirituality or unearthlyness or etherealness -- not sure quite how to describe it, but hope am putting across the idea.  Maybe it is mystic.  At any rate something that takes the viewer beyond just the figurative form. 

Zen Master will be so pleased with such a beautiful gift.

 Thank you Grace O.

 I'm grateful that you are getting the energy surrounding my projects.
As I'm sure you know taking a picture and seeing a project in person is very different. There are some things that you can't see in the photo.

I'm happy for the positive feedback and also to know that the overall feeling is being conveyed in a true way despite the detail that can not be seen in the photo.

Many Smiles and joyful crafting,
T

I'm in agreement with Vitaminpink and Grace O.  You feel peaceful just looking at him.  I agree with leaving the face blank too.
