Alpaca fleece needle sculpture

I use pure alpaca fleece to create sculptures inspired by nature, often inspired through my parasitology research - my interpretation of what I observe through the microscope.

I elect to use mainly white (ivory) alpaca fibre in suri and huacaya as I want my sculptures to resemble a hard, clean surface rather than looking 'woolly'. This means that my pieces are worked for many hours to create a sleek and cool vision - all from alpaca. The framed pieces are mounted in professionally made, bespoke frames, designed especially for showcasing the sculptures.

E. mac - parasite

350.00

Second piece in the parasite series.

Produced from raw, white alpaca fleece and a porcupine quill, the sculpture of this intestinal alpaca parasite floats above a limed fence post. Specific to alpacas, this parasite is often found where stocking densities are high and hygiene is compromised. The fence post represents the risk posed, particularly although not exclusively to juvenilles.

The parasite, Eimeria macusaniensis or E mac or Big Mac is perfectly adapted to reproducing in the gut of the alpaca, causing bleeding and abscesses, which, if not treated quickly, can cause ill-thrift, weakness, weight loss and death.

Only visible with the aid of a microscope, measuring approx. 90microns in length, this tiny parasite can cause dreadful suffering to alpacas. This piece is a reminder to all alpaca lovers of the dangers of overstocking, hence the piece is mounted on a fence panel, limed and waxed!
