I have a soft spot for the cyclops. In stories, this character is treated either as a cannibalistic monster or an imbecile. In truth, cyclocephaly is a congenital disorder and the victims (newborns) never live more than a few days past their birth. This is according to cases that have been documented. In most cases, the nose is above the singe eye and both are very deformed.
My cyclops pieces are bright and and seemingly all knowing. This wall sculpture is made of white sculpture studio clay and is clear glazed on the inside to allow for cut flowers, air plants, or even a bit of pothos ivy. I painted the outside with acrylics and added some small brass findings for the carnival look that I adore. This hangs with a hand wrapped cotton rope cord and is 26 cm tall x 17.3 cm wide. It weighs 2 lbs. 3.2 oz.
Handmade by myself. Started in 2018 and finished in 2019.
