The God of Sleep, Hypnos
His wings evolved from his temples, his expression is quiet,
his consciousness has drifted far away from us.
His wings have been 'crystallised' with small nuggets of glass.
His face has been 'mummified' with clay and has been crackled.
Inside his right temple I placed a glass crystal with the word 'Sleep' behind it.
The word seems to lose its footing when you move your eye over the faceted glass,
sleep can not be caged.
A white feather, trapped inside the varnish, follows the line of his jaw
This piece measures 46 x 17 cm's
🎨 ABOUT PANTOVOLA
I make handmade textile sculptures and art dolls since 2015 inspired by Fairytales and Folklore, Victorian Ghost Stories, Dreams and the Natural Queendom.
My creations are all lovingly made by me in my homestudio using mostly vintage & antique fabrics and curios, water based paints and air drying clay.
I try to give a good representation of the artworks with my photographs,
however some colours may slightly vary depending on screen calibration
