This is a chick. It may very well lead a "happy chicken" revolution. (See the "collection of connections" blog & you'll see what I mean.)
The LanArt collection of "Aves" is just a drop in the plentiful bucket of the class with most living species. They range in size from the tiny Hummingbird to the massive ostrich and are the last descendants of the extinct dinosaurs.
Characterized by their feathers, toothless beaks, and egg-laying young, the artists try to capture these spectacular creatures in alpaca fiber, with deliberate attention to shape, markings, and color. These expert needle felters have years of expertise in this craft, and continue to create each with artistic pride. Due to the handcrafting process, each piece is unique with slight variations.
About needle felting?
Needle felting is a dry felting method using either wool or alpaca as we do. It is quick and easy, and inexpensive, requiring very few tools and taking up very little space.
