First Full Moon
Queen's Palace on Water's Edge
Meet Gilroy, the Queen's Messenger. His current assignment.....hand deliver the Queen's invitations to the Fairies Ball.
Gilroy is made with fabric and paperclay. His wings are hand knitted with wire thread. His eyes are glass and his hair is mohair. He wears a blouse hand stitched from an antique hankie and he carries the Queen's invitations in a hand stitched leather pouch. His mount (fish) is fabric, coated with transparent gesso and sanded to a smooth finish. His "mask" is hand knitted wire. He too has glass eyes. Gilroy is approximately 9" tall. Seated on his mount he is approximately 18".
I pondered on Gilroy for some time. He just wasn't speaking to me. When that happens, I find it best to sleep on it a bit, knowing that when he was ready he'd let me know his true identity.
