3 . Unorthodoxy Seussel-proxy Taxadermous Who!
Robin Middlebrook Bakersfield , CA USA

16" H x 11" W X 10" D
In the spirit of Dr Seuss' "Unorthox Taxidermy" sculptures I created my Unorthodoxy Seussel-Proxy Taxadermous Who. I blended the above Seuss story and sculpture characters, and the result is a taxadermied beast, who, fancifully is very much alive and well in Who-Ville The face and neck is needle felted using a blend of New Aealand Corriedale and Merino Cross Felting Batts. The mane is wet felted out of 80/20 Silk Blends. The antlers are constructed out of a wire frame covered in 80/20 Silk Blends. There are two glass beads for eyes. Approximately 10% of the project is flower foam in the neck used to mount the head to the plaque. I incorporated many of Seuss' extra touches such as: "the Pants Green" for the eyes; "the Sneech Star and Seuss Blue, Yellow, Green and Red"; the characteristic Seuss Bulging Whites Eyes and "Cartoony" Crooked Smile; and last, but certainly not least, wispy, wispy, wispys everywhere! I hope you enjoy my Unorthodoxy Seussel-Proxy Taxadermous Who as much as I do!

About Us | Privacy Policy | Contact Us
Needle felting is a term for using one or more felting needles by hand to create flat felt or felt sculpture. The first use of felting needles in this manner that we know of was in the early 1980's by artisans David & Eleanor Stanwood.
