"Benson the Snowman Art Doll Winter Scene"
Hi there, and thank you for popping in.
I would like you all to meet Benson the Snowman!
Benson was created from osnaburg muslin and natural cotton batting with wired arms that can gently be posed. He has been weighted so he can stand independently. His face features button eyes, a sculpted fabric nose, and a mouth of "coal" pieces I sculpted from clay and painted. He's been grunged up with a rubbing of cinnamon to make him appear old and a bit tattered, a "Loved for a Hundred Years" look. Everything has been sprinkled with Mica flakes to mimic freshly fallen snow.
His black felt tophat, adorned with tattered corduroy, old, old buttons, and a few lovely feathers, is stitched to his head and cannot be removed. Benson wears a scarf to match his hatband, and large rusty jingle bells are stitched down his tummy.
He carries a beautiful little broom I created from an oak stick and raffia. A little bird sits in his left hand, while a lantern with a timer tea light flickers at his side. Everything sits independently on a "snow puddle" I created from cotton batting, a dash of cinnamon, and a sprinkle of Mica snow.
Measurements: "Benson" stands approximately 16" tall.
"Benson" is a One-of-a-Kind original that comes signed and dated. It is intended for adult collectors and, although he looks huggable, is not a child's toy.
Thank you for stopping in, and have a lovely day!
