hello again
Some of you may have seen my last post.
i really love the permanence of cave painting and petroglyphs. i love how all cultures have some variations of them.
I've been searching for grounding, and i guess it has come out my crafts a bit more
after the spirit goat i decided to get a bit more ambitious
here is my Buffalo.

i didn't really use a pattern, just the idea of what i wanted in my head, some pics of buffaloes and gave paintings off the internet and went with what the fabric said to me. he is completely hand stitched. jointing him was pretty difficult though. his eyes are mother of pearl buttons under coconut buttons. he stands (hoof to shoulder) 20inches tall. tail to head about 24inches long and his horns are about 20inches tip to tip. so he is quite a bit bigger than i intended him to be. I guess he wanted to be a big guy. i love how he is looking at you.

if anyone is interested there are more pics on my Facebook page. 
I'm trying to move from my regular day jobs to crafting more. I'm playing around with the idea of "playable art"
what do you think? C&C always welcome.

love to take part in personal swaps, I would love a poppet of my very own, or a doll like the ones made by Poppets & Lace

This is really neat. I like the details on the head, and I like the fabric choices of the ears.

That first pic drew me in, but it was the shot from head on that made me love it. The cocked head, giant horns, and the way the body and legs look, fantastic.

I can't stop looking at that front shot. It's so expressive. I hope you don't mind, but I saved it on my computer for inspiration. That front shot totally draws me in.

I love it! Great job.

This is really cool. What petroglyphs or cave's paintings did you use for inspiration?
