The antlers from my earlier post were created for some little Jackalopes!
Jackalopes are a mythological creature from America and a ongoing taxidermists’ joke, These little critters were created for a recent work focusing on the origins of mythological creatures such as this whilst incorporating the nest I have created previously which is viewable here.
Before antlers and with mum
and with the silver antlers.
These little jackalopes and mummy Jackalope were handsewn and constructed from felt and have plastic eyes (I couldn’t find eyes small enough for the babies so they have plastic beads for eyes). The colours are modeled on my (not so) little rabbit Ophelia.
This work was displayed in my recent tutorial at uni, the little babies in their eggs were snuggled into the nest and the nest was perched on a crochet covered treebranch “growing” from the wall.
Mamma Jackalope was sitting patiently guarding her young underneath the branch.
