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.

    Thanks JK,

    I responded much earlier but I guess it never went through. Thanks you so much for your submission.
