Hans My Hedgehog, paper, clay, paint, map, nails, approx 30cm tall

 From the Grimm story of the same title, about a boy born half-hedgehog who ends up taking down a kingdom, all while riding a rooster and herding pigs, as one does. The Singing Bones, my collection of 70 such knick-knacks, is due for release in late September (Australia).

  1. Did you glue all the spikes?

    1. Yes, they are just nails. The whole sculpture ended up being quite heavy for its small size, there were so many of them.

  2. This is one extremely confident hedgehog. I definitely like this version better than the one that came to my head when I read the description at the bottom.

    1. Yes, the best thing about the story is how plucky the main character is, he's such a self-confident freak, which is perhaps the ideal state for any individual.
