This charming couple is about to dive in - whether it be into the pool, into the relationship, or perhaps yet another shared hot fudge sundae. With extra whip cream.

Diving Couple are made from one gourd each (body, head and neck are the gourd), with arms and legs made from paper mache and paper clay layered over a wire armature. The base is made from plaster, cardboard and paper clay. Matching bathing suits and swim caps are painted with a light periwinkle blue and cream polka dot pattern. Words are imprinted into base. Painted with acrylic paints and varnished for a softly aged patina.

Each figure measures approx. 7.5" tall by 3.5" wide and 3.5" deep.
Audible gourd seeds inside.
