Metropolis Maria meets Azrael

30 October 2011

At long last I have found a body for my magpie wings!  Not just any body – it’s the doll formerly known an Evil Maria from Metropolis. She has weighted eyes, so she can flutter her eyelashes, and appear to be sleeping if you lay the canvas down. She is being held up by a cast resin hand, with a moth embedded inside it.  I am thinking her middle name now, is probably Azrael.  The Angel of Death is male according to Wiki, but you try arguing with a doll with magpie wings.

The wings are from ebay and I’ve had them a little while.  They came with the assurance that the bird’s death was accidental.  I couldn’t use murdered creatures in my work.
