Inspiration From A Folk Art Basket






















As I was thumbing through one of my folk art books, I stopped to study an image of a woven basket. The design had a human-like figure but no face. I thought is was really sweet and naturally I had to give my version a face.

I had to have something with a little bit of green in it since today is St Paddy's day but as you can see, this is about as far away from an Irish "anything" as you can get. :)

It sort of reminds me of something from the Aztecs or Incas, or maybe the zia symbol (on the New Mexico state flag). I like it!

Hey Kiddo!
Nice figure. The headpiece has a bit of the Celtic Cross flavour to me. Of course green is always good!
