56: faun o’ mine

September 6th, 2008


(Just wanted to say here that Dh posts my pics to my site and adds the titles..he thinks he is very witty?!)

Above is my latest work.  He has been transformed from a plastic Halloween skeleton head to a Satyr.  O.k., a blind satyr.  He is approx 18 inches tall.  I have 2 bone earrings that will eventualy  put on his head when I “wig him”.  How he is posed will be his final pose–he will be a blind beggar with a pan pipe..how I arrived at this, I truly don’t know. He is done with Das paper clay (as with all my sculpts)…I am very pleased with how he has turned out so far.  My question to you gentle reader is…how should he be dressed???  I was thinking of putting a monk’s type robe on him so it would kinda cover his face and make him more mysterious but Dh was horrified.  He think he should look more like Mr. Timnus in “Lion, a Witch and a Wardrobe.”  He seems darker than that to me…any suggestions?????

    Hi Linda~
    So far I think he’s GREAT!
    I like the robe idea. It’s fitting to a blind beggar.

    I like the robe idea too, but maybe not so much hood as he can’t turn his blind face to the sun. But then maybe too a more faunish outfit underneath to remind him of the sunny days from before he was blinded, maybe a little worn and faded. I just KNOW there is a good story there somewhere =o)

    I like the monk’s robe idea, it seems fitting. He’s wonderful so far!
