Here are some more of my "Elegant Beasts" dolls. They are all made from bird skulls.
They are all cloth stump dolls. This one I call "Countess Dowager" because she reminded me of Maggie Smith's character from Downton Abby.
I made these dolls a few months ago for the fiber show in Houston, but I'm behind on posting them.
This one is the "Black Queen"
These dolls are all about 15-17 inches tall. Most of them are made with chicken skulls. I fill in most of the skull with paper clay and Apoxie Sculpt, and add the eyes.
Here is "Lady Peacock".
After going through so many skulls, I finally made a mold of one and cast some of them out of paper clay.
I call this one "Mourning Bird"
For this one, I used a turkey skull. I didn't add eyes for her, but left her more "skull-like".
