I decided to release this delicious male specimen from his colourless, marble prison and give him a new life in modern day Australia. Where better than at a beach, at sunset?

I have used a fabric collage technique, adding some additional padding where needed to show him off to full advantage. I’ve ‘bronzed’ him a little with fabric paint and stitched in some surfer locks with variegated thread. It’s all held together with a lot of quilting.
