Peacock spider males are famous for their incredibly colorful abdomens, which some can unfurl like a banner for their mating dances.

This is a Maratus elephans specimen. The name references the elephant-looking design on his flashy abdomen. The blue is sort of shaped like an elephant face with a trunk down the middle with ears off to the sides.

Real peacock spiders are tiny – some species are as small as 2.5 mm! My sculpture is about 135 mm long, or 5.5 inches.

He is needle felted wool over a thin wire armature. All his joints are easily articulated and even his display flaps can be folded down. His eyes are plastic hot glued in place.

To see all dimensions and how he can be posed, watch this YouTube video:

*Needle felted wool over wire, which makes it gently pose-able.

*Plastic eyes and wire beneath. Not suitable for young children.

*This is an art doll and not a toy. The wool is densely felted but can be pulled apart by determined little fingers.
