Dave the Dead: Pumpkin Baby

Dave the Dead's statue of a pumpkin creature with two small creatures in hand, rising out of a pumpkin
Dave the Dead strikes again. I've blogged about his creations before, and thought I should share with you his newest project recently completed.

This is Pumpkin Baby (inspired by the Frog Baby statue in Indiana). I think I like Dave's better.

It's made from a bit of everything: pvc armature, rolled newspaper body form, scrap urethane foam, strip paper mache, celluclay, paperclay, spackling compound, sculpt or coat, and homemade pulp mache.

Look closely and you'll see the pumpkin seeds as entrails. I couldn't imagine anyone making all of those little bits of seeds by hand so I asked him about them. Those are real seeds beneath that clay.
