Where nature and art meet!
The Armadillo was a project I hesitated to do because of the complexity, plus I’ve never seen an armadillo. The armor is that of a hard-shell gourd with my best attempt in creating something fairly realistic. The head and the tail were made from two penis-shield gourds and the ears were made from one jewelry gourd cut in half. The feet were made of paper mache and the toenails of tooth picks. The base is a large piece of redwood that I brought with me from California.
