Mind Flayer de Milo

I am a rather accomplished pack rat, so I manage to discover long lost treasures all the time... generally while trying to locate my keys or children or coffee cup.

At the bottom of a jumbo plastic cup, moonlighting as a pen holder, I found a miniature I made during my high school AD&D days. The arms had broken off, but otherwise the paint and Sculpey had held up really well. These were the days that Sculpey only came in one type and one color, but it was still the most fantastic stuff a broke high schooler might want.

Anyhow, it reminded me of the Venus de Milo and that I like making stuff.

So, here's the set up and a quarter for scale. The photo is from an art history website about Greece. I had an unfortunate computer shutdown while trying to bookmark it, but I'll just say here that it's not mine.

My cool "found" thing is not anything I made, but rather something I call my Puppy Gun. In reality, I was in Axeman's Surplus in Minneapolis years ago and found a bin full of detached and random Teddy Ruxpin segments. The piece I bought for a quarter can be held like, say, a shower door handle, the eyes and mouth above and below your knuckles. If you squeeze it the right way, the eyes blink and the mouth opens. It had fallen behind my dresser sometime last century.

Okay, now that's my kind of disturbing yet amusing puppet. :)
