Nepenthe by scenceable Nepenthe by scenceable
Nepenthe is a ooak (one of a kind) kirin or unicorn sculpture. He is made from polymer clay over a wire and foil armature, and painted in acrylic. His hair is tibetan lamb fur an his eyes are made from resin. He has a body length of about 5 inches long and is about 5.5 inches tall from ground to antler tip.

I did Nepenthe just as a random personal project, I seem to always want to make wintery kirins around this time of year! He's been sold already, but if you're interested in a commission, I have information on my website here: [link] sculptures start at $200.

If you are interested in following my sculpture work and seeing progress photos feel free to check out my facebook [link] or tumblr [link]

Thanks for looking!
