Description

RESERVED FOR ENRICO!

The male lion spends 80% of his life napping or spectating, while the females generally lead the hunt. But when the male gets up to feed, everyone else in the group yields to him (no matter who made the kill or who got there first) due largely to his role as Protector and Guardian. No wonder they travel in 'Prides.' Even a low rumble from one of these magnificent beasts is enough to strike awe and wonder in one's heart. And it's one of those 'awesome low rumbles' i have tried to capture in this bust.

This listing is for the complete set: bust, OOAK hands and feet (featuring modifed 'barefoot' pads on their soles) constructed of stained, waxed Cassius Basaltic stoneware. The left front of the bustplate is marked with my initials and the year, and the back with "Lion#2." Note the hand-sculpted curls on his mane, and his teeth and tongue, sculpted of arctic white stoneware and set into the basaltic clay. The bust also has holes hidden throughout the curls in his mane as well as in the back of the head for attaching MORE curls (i'm thinkin' dreadlocks, here, maybe from some curly wool roving?).

The bust and limbs are already fitted with the necessary holes for attaching to jointed cloth arms and legs, and are designed to be completed with a body pattern similar to the one available in my step-by-step, full-color 25-page illustrated PDF tutorial, available separately here: https://www.etsy.com/listing/106450118/pdf-pattern-a-and-instructions-for

If completed according to my pattern & instructions, the doll will stand approximately 18"-20" tall, requiring a slightly modified body pattern from the one included in the above PDF, available shortly, so check back soon for that, as well as sketches of how the completed doll might look.

Thanks for doting!!

I have collected a number of instruction books for sculpting with clay. I am sure that these tutorials rise above them all in scope, detailed information, visual interest, and inspiration for the reader. Great!

  • Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
Etsy keeps your payment information secure. Etsy shops never receive your credit card information.
I accept PayPal and am now pleased to accept all major credit cards (Visa, Mastercard, Discover and American Express) through Etsy Direct Checkout! An 8.85% sales tax charge will be added to all orders received from NY addresses in accordance with tax guidelines for my NYS county.

Sorry, but unless i know you personally, no personal checks or money orders.

Returns & exchanges

I will exchange for any item not to your satisfaction for any other item of equal value, except custom orders, which will be handled via email progress reports on commissions over $100. ALL SALES FINAL.

Shipping policies

All items are carefully packed and my fully-insured shipping profiles are pre-calculated based upon USPS 1st Class or Priority Mail with online tracking and my experience so far has been excellent. If you prefer UPS or FedEx, please convo me with your zip or postal code prior to purchase for a shipping quote.

International orders ship via USPS with their required Customs Form (which doubles as a tracking number according to my local postmaster). --And please: do not ask me to contact you outside of Etsy for 'your private carrier' arrangements. It won't happen.

I now ship in-stock items on Tuesdays and Fridays, unless working against a special deadline that has been prearranged via convo, and turnaround time on custom items is individually based on project complexity, which will be agreed upon by us via convo before i begin.
