Emily Stone Copper Guinea Pig Sculpture 1

When I was asked to make a guinea pig, I thought I might be defeated. We had them as children, and I love them – but what is there to sculpt? They are just a jelly-bean-shaped lump! However, it worked better than I had hoped; everyone who picks him up, strokes him. The silly ear-flaps, the rounded bottom and smooth shape, and the inquisitive nose – he really works. Did you notice the little front feet peeping out from the fur?
