The human being is not the lord of beings, but the shepherd of Being.
With the latest Pocket Spirit, I went back to a familiar style. Assembled within 2 venetian blind boxes, a figure came to life. First, let’s take a look at the parts:
I forgot to take a picture before I started painting the pieces, so what you see is the stage where I had put everything together, started to paint, and then took it all apart. The box at the top of the photo is in fact two venetian blinds connected together by rivets, and this marks the first piece that I have started using this process. The gold latch near the upper left of the phot is to become the head, and this was another gift in the package left to me by neighbor Alana. I found the long curved piece that would be the crook at a thrift store…it is some kind of kitchen appliance.
Here is the final product:
With recent pieces I have been trying to use more permanent methods of attaching. In this one, a screw connects each pupil through the latch mechanism to the boxes, and another screw keep the torso in place, and the legs are secured under the body.
Simply “The Shepherd.” this stalwart fellow watches over his flock from atop a rocky crag. he benefits from keen eyesight, as well as a remarkable sense of smell. An observant protector, he will keep any home safe from the more nasty spirits. A hanging sculpture, this piece is 5.5 x 4 x 2.5 inches.
