Creature Comforts- Solomon
2x4x1.25

So far, during this year of the pandemic, I am finding my creative needs circling around small "craft" projects. Smaller pieces with more mixed media involved.
This little creatures is one of those craft projects. Solomon is a slug-like creature who started as a ball of epoxy clay. Made in Wisconsin, I wanted to just enjoy creating the shape of a worm, like when we were children and we pulled out Play-Doh and did exactly that, played. Solomon is a busy fellow who helps out the tooth fairy in repurposing teeth. Always on the move, he has a smile for everyone. The numbers 2020 are written in red beads on his underside. Buddhism, Hinduism, Sikhism, the Baha'i Faith, and Christianity all use beads as a means of devotion. The word bead is derived from the Old English bede which means a prayer. Beads are among the earliest human ornaments with African beads dating back to 10,000 BC and have been considered such powerful objects through the ages.
