Hehketêene Maquette

This is a small maquette sculpture based on a monster in my tribe’s traditional folklore. It’s a shapeshifter, who in order to shift must remove their internal organs to become an owl. The name used for it is the same name we use to identify Great Horned Owls. 

The sculpture is constructed on a weathered wooden base with wire armature, Super Sculpey, acrylic gesso, acrylic paints, and miniature LEDs in the eyes which are fed through the feathered headpiece. I’ve included my concept work to show my process.
