Fancy Wyvern - Poseable Sculpture

Handmade poseable wyvern - created using paper magiclay and card over carved foam, with wire armature to enable it to be bent into a variety of poses. Painted using an airbrush and sponges. Eyes are glass with painted backs, so the pupils seem to follow you around the room. 

This species is a prime example of what happens when secondary sexual traits, designed to visually impress the opposite gender, become favoured over evolutionary fitness. These wyvern are almost incapable of flight, though their tough scales and long talons allow for spectacular fights to impress mates or assert dominance over others. Both males and females express brilliant colours. Their tough scales protect them so well that they seldom suffer threats from any other species, or their own kind, which is the primary reason for this pretty over practical evolutionary path.
