Well, it is the end of an era. Little Shiva is now too big for the car and is being waterproofed. I am sort of glad to be free of it on one hand, on the other I now have to work on the shoe and small handbag collection so it is just another kind of work.
I suppose I should clean out my mobile studio prior to commencement of a new project, as Little Shiva was very messy.
It now resembles a boat, and I will have to find somewhere to keep it that is secure and safe.
For the benefit of Little Shiva the person, so far you are a spectacular chair. Let us hope that you are not destroyed during the next phase of construction.
Nine months full time sewing is the longest I have ever worked on any single piece at once. Although Raw Sex Object took a total of 7 years and represents four people, it was very slow and laid back and I was not in a hurry to complete it. It is a pain in the neck and weighs about 40 kg at the last weighing. Little Shiva is likely to be double that.
Little Shiva was a crazy decision, but a combination of grief for my mother and disbelief that anyone could be that nasty meant that this was the time to do it.
Now it is time to move on, and I will devote myself to my smaller pieces in an effort to get some work further afield. I have a lot to do.
Haram Bawbag is still underway and will be the next large piece to finish, probably followed by Iain Duncan Smith prior to being anywhere near to completion of Little Shiva.
In the meantime, I will be thinking about lighting as this was a popular idea.
It is probably time I did some writing.
