Death's-head Hawk Mof by Magweno Death's-head Hawk Mof by Magweno

Death's-head hawk moths get their name from a pale skull like marking on the back of their thoraxes. They aren't dangerous though, and actually make quite a completely underwhelming squeaking noise when alarmed! 

This is a cuddly version, hand sewn and assembled by me. He has a resin head, feet and hands cast from an original sculpt. These have been painted carefully with acrylics and varnished. The feather antennae are from happy, healthy chickens and sourced responsibly.
