Zombie Chicken

- by Tina Marie Ferguson

This week's theme: Dolls

Dolls have been with mankind since prehistory and are found in every culture. They are used in religious ceremonies, sought by collectors, used in magic, are cultural icons and are toys for children. They are also created as art. Artist made dolls are special things. They are made for many different reasons and the materials used - like the dolls themselves, are as varied and unique as the artist that creates them.


Art: Zombie Chicken by Artist Tina Marie Ferguson
Meet your worst nightmare, a zombie chicken. This one is constructed of a hat and glove set along with striped socks. The body and tail are made from the hat and the hat's lining. The wings are made from the gloves and the chicken's top feathers are the thumbs from the gloves. The legs, feet and beak are a part of a pair of purple, white, black and teal striped socks. The crazy mismatched eyes are buttons accented with white stitches. A tiny red button is barely visible through the threads that bind his beak. White stitches also run down his chest and belly. Oh and he literally has knotty knees. This guy is kind of disturbing in a cute sort of way.
