The Child Raised by Wolves

One of a small ( they are 5" high by 3 inches wide) series of nine curiosities I made by affixing bits of nature found on the ground to antique photos. Four more from the series on Tinytheatre.

On gerdiary, Heike is participating in an interesting memorial project. Those who enjoy stitching- or gluing- might want to add their own wings.

Interesting way to make a hat!

I always love these! The Wolf Brothers and the Balancing beauties and the Horned Woman also. It's the mix of this sober age of photography with your grinning sense of play.

Delightful and fun and kind of sad. I love the hat.
It takes my own imagination away on an even stranger track of thought. This is good. my brain needs this today beause it is raining again in Vancouver.
Lovely.

Similar thoughts and feelings, as Mary Jane expressed. This is so profound and lovely.

amazing title. mixing nature with old cards is a unique thing to do.

The wolves gave her a good dress for the photo--and the hat suits her too.

I love this as an artefact, yet it's that face, with its lunar aspect, that has prepossessed me.
