Miniature Wildlife sculpture by Anya Stone
British mixed media artist Anya Stone has 15 years of experience in fine art and design. She makes life-like, detailed miniature sculptures of wildlife out of polymer clay in 1:12 scale and smaller scales. Wood, synthetic fibers or feathers are applied to sculpture to make them look realistic. The sculpture of a gray wolf (in the above picture) is made from polymer clay with different shades of hand blended merino wool applied to the body. The eyes are made of green glass. Height 6cm at the shoulder. Traditionally Lupercus was known as the God of winter and has the ability to transform into a wolf. It is said that his day falls between the 2nd and 15th of February, so he is associated with Valentines day, especially in the times of ancient Rome. Lupercus is sometimes identified with the Roman God Faunus and is a protector of flocks and shepherds who drives away the wolves and dangers of the night.
