Totem Owl

This is Quill, a barn owl. He is a messenger and wise little critter as an owl should be. He is hand stitched in unbleached muslin from a self-drafted pattern and then painted with acrylics. His feet are sculpted from polymer clay over a wire armature, painted, and then sealed. I knitted him a little scarf from some wool and made him a lapel brooch with a carved bone skull and some copper wire. He wears an amulet of glass and resin beads. He stands at about 5 3/4inches tall and is made with a 1/12th dollhouse scale in mind.
