A rococo mermaid in Kato Polyclay.
Banshee is wearing a shroud, or my idea of one. As you can see from the back, walking would be difficult. I wanted to imply some other, less familiar, mode of locomotion...

Still on the year's Carnegie Dinosaur toy prototypes. Alas, I cannot show them to you yet. Safari, the company producing them, very much wants the subjects to remain a surprise until they are released for public consumption.

I aim to do more with Hans C. Andersen tales over the next while.
