My New Chimp



I just finished this little one for a commission. I did a few things different from my usual chimpanzees. I decided to give her a polymer clay face and hands. She's four way posable and sits at 4 3/4 inches tall. She doesn't have a name, yet. The hardest part was sewing the silly sock monkey. The sock material kept unraveling and turning out those tiny legs & tail was a real pain! But I always like to include a sock monkey with my chimps. I like the duality betwween the toy and the real. That's one of my fascinations with working with wool.

Another masterpiece Robin! That little chimp is such a sweetheart, and excellent job on her face. The sock monkey is cute too!

Ohhhh.... der kleine Affe ist ja wirklich liebenswert.... mit den großen Kulleraugen. Und das Eichhörnchen sieht auch sehr nett aus. Ihre kleinen Kunstwerke sehen richtig lebendig aus.

Liebe Grüße PuNo/Monika
