Feathered Lemur

Feathered Lemur – part of my series of invented animals. I made her out of stainless steel and then decide to gild her to transform the everyday material into something magical and mystical.  Gold is such an emotive material and very often imbued with magical qualities. It’s been use for centuries in religious iconography.  I love the drama that gold adds to a piece.

She’s made from acid etched stainless steel, imitation gold leaf and is pinned, using entomology pins, into a museum entomology box. Feathered Lemur is a limited edition of 20 and costs £475.
