Earthling: Guardian of the Roots

Regular price $125.00 $0.00 Unit price per

This tiny being is flawed, scarred, alive, weird, cute, friendly, dangerous, divine, and happy. Their materials are natural, artificial, manufactured, grown, purchased, discarded, and found. Their form is evolved from Blumenkinder (flower children) -- German folk art, wood carvings that decorated my childhood and still reside in my mother's house.

The flower is a pod from an invasive carrotwood tree, and the stuffing is pennies for weight plus fluff from the neighborhood kapok tree. Other materials: canvas from a discarded tarp, thread, wire. Made by hand and machine.
