Needle felted silkworm moth / Venezuelan Poodle Moth

Needle felted Silkworm Moth / Venezuelan Poodle Moth. They do resemble each other so I took some artistic freedom in creation my version. ;-) 
It is about 9" (23cm) in length. It´s wing span measures a 13 1/2" (34 cm).
Made with nice soft Mohair wool and definitely a one-of-a-kind creation. 
The wings are made with silk gauze and a fine wire. The antennae´s are made of wire and linen thread. The legs are also made with wire inside and can be posed. The moth is very lightweighted.
