When the nightmare corpse-city of
R’lyeh stood dark and brooding above the waves, the principle of “as
above, so below" still stood. Even here, where dark shadows cling like
limp, cold rags to the soul, in the rare pools of light, balance is
found. For all the dread god’s horror-filled creations and existence,
tiny foils of his deeds go about their work busily undoing the madness
and slowly expanding the light.
When the great city fell to the seas
and the god slumbered, his tiny nemeses found their way across the
oceans, spreading and undoing the damage done by their dread cousin.
These are the Pixi C’toowoos. In
their long journey, they came to a small wood in Virginia for a
well-deserved rest. We found them on a walk along a wooded path; their
tiny warren had taken damage during a recent flood. We convinced them
to follow us home and easily fell for their happy and often comical
ways. With so many, and of such varied shapes, sizes, and colors, we
realized that other homes could benefit from the light and joy these
whimsical creatures bring.
Scuplted by hand from polymer clay,
each Pixictoowoo has hand-shaped polymer clay wings, hand-painted
details in acrylic, and iridescent glass bead eyes. They stand an
average of 1.5 inches (3.8 cm) tall and reach out with a 2-inch (5
cm)-wide hug, just for you.
