"El Muan y La Madremonte", Colombian legends

I made El Muan y La Madremonte dolls inspired by stories that I heard when I was a child, the two characters were described for those who claimed to have seen them, as a monstrous man with long hair, who lived by the rivers and scared fishermen, and a strong woman dressed in leaves, who protected the woods and punished those who invaded her territory. To make them, I used soda cans, styrofoam balls and plain kraft paper.

Happy Monkeys Tree for a farewell party

I finished my first big Happy Monkeys Tree!. I made it for a friend farewell party, each monkey representing one guest. They will write good wishes and sign their names on the white paper monkeys. The tree will end very crowded because near 100 monkeys! pardon, people are invited.
