Meerkat with book

 
This is a special order creation.
 
Mr Meerkat has been created using Tyber synthetic fabrics with ultrasuede palms and soles of the feet. His filling consists of polyfill with a bag of plastic pellets in his tummy for added weight, there are addtional rubber pellets in his tail for flexibility. His arms and legs are nut and bolt jointed and contain wire armature for poseability, his wrists are cotterpin jointed. He also has a wire armature spine so that he can move his head up or down. His nose and claws are hand sculpted from polymer clay, they have wire backs to allow for a secure attachment. His high quality glass taxidermy eyes have been set into specially constructed eye sockets and have waxed cotton cord for lids. His mouth has been constructed from perle cotton thread and his whiskers are hand dyed horse hair.
 
He has been needle and scissor sculpted and has been extensively airbrush shaded. There is an Arcas Designs tag sewn in under his bottom.
 
Mr Meerkat measures approximately 9.75" from top to bottom.
 
I handmade his accompanying leather bound book which measures 3" by 2.25" across (when opened up it measures approximately 4.5" across). It contains 14 blank pages.
