New Ehag Emporium piece! "Halloween Wannabe Easter Bunny"

"Halloween Wannabe Easter Bunny"
SOLD ~ Thank You!

Lately I've been playing around with Mohair and for this new piece
I decided to give him a retro haircut so he has a Mohair flocking coat.
This little bunny saw the vintage style Halloween cat striking his classic arched back pose
and thought he'd give it a go himself. In true "Gattamelata" style 

"The Gattamelata" by Donatello in the Piazza del Santo in Padua, Italy

He strikes his best pose, and of course, instead of the classic cannon ball as depicted 
in classical equine sculptures, he's chosen the next best thing... 
a Halloween colored Easter Egg!  

This is an original sculpted papier mache crossover piece, an Easter Bunny who really wants
to be a Halloween Cat, and is practicing his pose!
Hand scissored and antiqued Mohair felting, with German glass eyes,
set on a 3" x 5" wooden base with a vintage style Halloween card design.
6" Long from the tips of his ears to the tip of his tail. 4 3/4" (H)

Halloween Wannabe Bunny is available for purchase tonight at 9pm (EST)
and is my offering for the February 2012  Ehag Emporium. There are going to be some
extra nice pieces this month so be sure and click over and check out the fabulous new 
Halloween folk art by the EHAG Artists.

Hey Deb! Thanks so much for taking the time to visit while I've been totally absorbed in home demands. It should all be done by the end of March though so there's a light at the end of the tunnel!

Your bunnies make me yearn to create for Easter. Don't think it'll happen this year, but it's so inspiring and calming to see all your beautiful work.

Hi, Deborah
Your Halloween Bunny is amazing! Thank you for stopping by my blog.
Oh, and here is my email address too.
I think I told you I was born and raised in the North Long Beach/Bellflower area. I do miss the awesome year-round fantastic weather and the ocean!
