Iris the Goddess of the rainbow and messenger of the Gods
When I was making her I kept putting her by the window in my art studio. I don't know why but I felt she was happier there than within the pile of threads, ribbons and beads etc. Then I looked through the most enormous list of Goddesses and I felt Iris suited her best. I felt that the land outside was calling to her and she was closest to it at the window.
Maybe this is where she will be happiest in your house?
Iris was created from A LONG stick, (measuring 20 inches!). By the time I had added her head, (From a Barbie!) and garland she measures 2 foot high. I added gold and silver leaf to the lower exposed part of the stick.
As you can see, Iris is heavily decorated in lush fabrics which are adorned with beads. her hair is the part I truly love most ;) She has natural dyed fleece (locks) and I have sewn in fabric and beads.
I have just noticed her green silk coat isn't showing, I'll add that picture asap.
I hope you love Iris. She is the only one I have ever made like ths.
Iris is also available from my Etsy store. You can buy from here or from my Etsy. If she is sold from here store she will be removed from Etsy.
