This shaman lives high in the Alpine mountains weaving magic and practicing his skills as a warlock. His race is one of intriguing sexual dimorphism - his horns and crest are for impressing females. They prize themselves on their intricate mating rituals including elaborate dances and casting an aesthetic spell to impress their ward. Porphyrios is a young shaman and has yet to find his match in life but remains wise for his years.
Porphyrios has been sculpted in polymer clay over a sturdy wire armature covered with wadding, which means he is fully posable. His silky-soft fur is sewn on by hand and he has been carefully painted with acrylic paints. He has an impressive crest made from real coque and pigeon feathers. His eyes are icy blue fimo painted with interference medium and then varnished.
I made him last weekend as a really quick 'for fun' doll and got a chance to take some photos today, so here he is! His fur really is soft and my friend says he has that "picking up a cat" feeling round the middle. He's small, sweet, soft and for sale! Follow this link to see his listing.
He is quite small, measuring only 22cm from nose to tail, 14cm from toe to the tip of his crest and 7cm from shoulder to shoulder. (8.5x5.5x2.5" approx.)
Thanks for looking
