No knitting, just football!

We have now the European Championship in football!              
Luckily, held in Poland, my country.
So I present probably the smallest fan of that Championship.
This old lady is 14cm tall (1:12 scale).
She is dressed in a beige skirt, a pink sweater
and her neck has a beige scarf adorned with a brooch.
But the most important is a set of a Polish football fan:
a hat, a scarf (the inscription on it means Poland) and even a ball .
Everything of course in colours of the Polish national team.
There is also a basket of hand knitting.
Not everyone likes football, but this old lady is unique.
She has completely lost her interest in knitting
for the football emotion.
Long live football! I like football very much and
because of football I have already bitten my fingernails,
so I'm afraid on this Saturday (match Poland - Czech Republic)
I'll lose all my fingers ;-)
Anyhow, I am definitely not going to knit!

Her green eyes...

A woman with green eyes, a green book and a green  apple. 
It was a fantastic experience to sculpt her face, 
part of which appears at the top of my homepage.
Figure is in scale 1:6, about 30 cm tall .
She is dressed in white pyjamas. 
The seat includes a wooden bed with white linen 
and a green blanket (everything, including bed, handmade by me).
The woman can take a variety of poses. 
She enjoys sleeping and...

"Life is the most amazing tale" H.C.Andersen

At the begining I would like to present a figure of the famous Danish 
fairy tales writer H.C. Andersen (1805-1875). 
When I was a child, his stories used to make a great impression on me.
By the way, it was in his book, I did my very first drawings as a kid 
(I still keep these drawings, though they have faded a bit :-) ).
Recently I read his biography (J.Andersen, "Andersen - en biografi", 
Gyldendal, Denmark, 2003) and it impressed me as much as his tales.
Well, he was very talented, complicated and beautiful man...
The figure I made is in scale 1:12. The coat and the hat can be removed. 
The smallest are the buttons on the vest - about 2mm in diameter. 
The set includes a walking stick.
