Daily Deviation

Given 2009-07-02
Hunter - Astrid Stareyed by =bleaknimue. If you like the strange and wondrously unusual, then all of =bleaknimue's gallery will surely please, but I always come back to this little lady. Mixed media and with poseable hands and feet, labradorite for her luminous eyes, a tiered skirt, and fur covering her dainty feet. ( Featured by Kitten-of-Woe )

I love her little toes. She reminds me of this story I read by Charles deLint. People made out of bird bones...

I had a dream about this woman (archetype) about a year ago.

She was the "queen" of some indigenous tribe that lived on top of a cliff over looking the ocean.

The location & tribe seemed to be Alaskan. A long time ago and here in the futuristic Ether. :abduction:
She was some sort of electric dandelion woman.

Skinny like bones, head dress the exact replication of your work.

All white dress and dark complexion ~ appeared rather old and VERY strong! In ways mysterious.
‘In fact I created a dedication to Gaia and her Electric Dandelions’ sometime this Feb 2009

~ Nice work!

A well-deserved DD, in my opinion. She's got style and is elegant in a scary way. I'd hate to find her in the back of the closet late at night, because I know she would look up at me and say, "Come Here!" Me screaming and running. ha! Bravo!

LOL! My neighbor told me once that she had dreams that they had escaped my house and were crawling up her windows. D: D: I told her she'd better bring a nice treat for them next time she visited. ;)

First, a well deserved Congratulations on a Daily Deviation. Then...I would love to see more photos of this, please? Its a most interesting piece, such a mixture of materials. I am curious though, I don't see any bones...I am guessing part of the structure underneath. What sorts of bones are they?

:iconbleaknimue:
bleaknimue Featured By Owner Jul 6, 2009
Thanks! ^__^

She sold a tear or so ago, so I'd have to dig around and see if I have any other pics of her.

The bones are snake vertebrae that make up her headband. They're strung on sinew with a few semiprecious beads and hold her hair back. :)

Interesting, I see them now (bigger monitor and better resolution make it so much easier). Snake vertebrae are fun bones to get to use.
You do really neat work.
