One Of A Kind realistic soft sculpture by Francesca Boretti
SYRIUS the puma cub
SYRIUS is OOAK. He has been entirely designed and hand crafted by myself in a smoke free house. Many hours of patient work have gone into the conception and creation of this puma cub.
MEASURES: 17 inches (about 44 cm) from nose tip to rear end.
MATERIALS: high quality faux fur. Polyfil for the stuffing, with an addition of enclosed mineral granulate for added weight. Glass eyes, horse hair for the whiskers.
FEATURES: Syrius has a lightweight Fimo clay sculpted head on which fur has been firmly attached. His eyes are transparent glass cabochons that I hand painted in tones of deep blue. His paw pads have been sculpted from Fimo clay and layer painted, for a very realistic effect. Extensive shading has been made to head and body, to bring out the typical young puma features and spots. Head and paw fur has been scissor sculpted.
JOINTING and POSING: Syrius’ body has been designed with no joints. All four limbs are a whole with the body. He has an internal padded wire frame that goes from head to back, and from there to all four legs. The tail is also wired. Thanks to these features he can be arranged in many different and realistic positions. His paws can be delicately curved to give them a natural pose.
SYRIUS owns an embroidered felt pillow also created by myself.
As with all my creations, he comes to you with a specially embroidered felt birth certificate made in matching style and materials.
