Today is World Rhino Day. I don't know who decides these "days" but I will take that opportunity and show you an older scene made by me. ;-)
It won the 2008 3rd place Beginner doll category of Jack Johnston's annual Prosculpt scholarship contest.
Once upon a time there was a medicine man somewhere in the wild savannahs of Africa. As he was getting old he decided to take on an apprentice so his work would be continued once he passes away. Chumbo was the boy he chose to be his successor.
One day someone sent for the old man to heal him in a remote place somewhere out in the wilds. As he was really getting old, he completely forgot to take the bag with the most important healing herbs and crushed bones with him. So he sent Chumbo on his way. It was a long way back to the medicine man's hut so Chumbo was allowed to ride the old man's rhino, which was a great honour.
Chumbo the Medicine Man's Apprentice is a one-of-a-kind 1:10th scale full body sculpt. He is 13 cm (5 inches) tall and made of polymer clay riding his masters rhino which is 14 cm ( 5.5")tall and 23cm (9") long. It is made of paper clay with a strong wire amature inside. The saddle is made of a velvetlike but stiff fabric and embellished with beads and linen floss.
Wish you a wonderful weekend.
