TOVE JANSSON DRAGON
Sculpture, 1999, mixed media, mostly papier-maché, 11" by Chris Wayan
I kept seeing the image of a creature like someone in a Tove Jansson book: not a Moomintroll, but a shy little creature with asymmetrical horns and a Fillyjonk face. The fish-taily wings just sorta happened while sculpting it.
The marble is a homage to Asian dragons with their pearls. Like even shy creatures like me have an iridescent world in our grasp.
