CHARMOLOGY HEAD II - Debut

Karen Thompson - Charmology Head II.

Sorting out what to take to the Saltburn Arts Fair on Sunday... Think it's about time Charmology Head II had an outing. This was a spare head that I made for the Scarborough Museums Trust Commission to give an option over the lurid pink, moustached head, or in case of breakages. So far this little fella hasn't seen the light of day! In a way I think I prefer him to the one that's currently on show in Scarborough Art Gallery.

OUT & ABOUT - The Great White Huntress

A Curious Assemblage.
                      
I found myself confronted with these creatures today amongst many others.... Fascinating bunch! They're to be found in the stores of Scarborough Museums Trust. An interesting tour today with Shirley Collier explaining the history behind the collection of taxidermy & also a little about the man who hunted them - John Harrison. Pygmies, weapons, musical instruments & Armadillo baskets also cropped up. Inspiration Ahoy!
