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.

 

Bears, bunnies and imagination.

My vintage style bears, bunnies and foxes may be found at my TedandSue website

Tapeworm - Taenia solium, parasite

300.00

Produced from raw, white alpaca fleece and porcupine quills, presented in a 'small intestine; of hand blown glass this is Taenia solium, or the Pig tapeworm. Humans can be infected with this tapeworm by eating infected, undercooked pork.

The pig tapeworm, Taenia solium, perfectly adapted to absorb nutrients from the gut. The head or scolex has 4 suckers used for attachment to the gut wall. The rostellum has two rows of hooks made of chitin, also used for gut attachment. The scolex is attached to the long ribbon-like body or strobila by a short neck. Not quite the 3metres in length of the real tapeworm, but all key features are represented and housed in an 'intestine of glass'.

Sculpture name: Tapeworm

 

 

Please note that this sculpture, like all of my creations, is for the adult collector - is not a toy, so is not suitable for children.
