Brand new batch of 10 ophies now available in my Etsy shop!£21 + £3.50 global postage
Ophies Ampheritos are winged serpents that live in Arabia guarding the frankincense groves. The adults are dangerous to humans and can deliver a nasty bite, although they are not venomous. (Thankfully these are just hatchlings!)
If you feel like taking on and training your own Ophae hatchling then check out the new batch available in my Etsy shop
. I have just listed the ten pictured above. Which breed will you collect? Draconian, Muroid, Testudine, Alligatoroid, Hognosed or the mysterious and rare Undead?
They're tiny squigglers measuring about 11" long and half an inch wide, with approximately 5.5" wingspans.
The bodies have wire inside so they can be wrapped around fingers, wrists, lamps, whatever you like.
The wings have been made from responsibly sourced chicken feathers from happy, healthy birds.
Their little heads are resin, cast from an original sculpt, and painted with acrylics.
