My (Very) Early Birthday Present

Wednesday, July 16, 2008

I saw him and couldn't leave: his tag at the gallery read, "Potential Roadkill". I have an affinity for possums (we have a pet possum that visits our backyard...we call him 'Jeeves') and armadillos, so this is perfect.

He's covered with mosaic pieces with different place names - like a tourist map almost. And his tail is red mirrored tiles. Flashy.

He was made by Kathy Brogden, who makes *the* most amazing mosaic sculptures.

Remember that crazy-good armadillo cake in 'Steel Magnolias'? A bunch of people have pictures of their own homemade ones on Flickr here!
