My Hero Twins, Hunahpu and Xbalanque are now finished and awaiting proper stringing. I don’t anticipate too many problem, my fingers crossed, but in the meantime I thought I would play around with the little mannequins. They are quite flexible and fall into clever and at times quite salacious positions. Good for them.
Sculpey and metal and aluminum foil armature, paint, steel wool, string
12.5 inches tall
They both have little necklaces, and bracelets and fancy boots; for naked boys they like to accessorize.
A Tom of Finland pose if there ever was one.
For as long as I have been working with the Hero Twin archetype, their tongue twisting names have befuddled me. Xbalanque, of the jaguar spots is depicted in such a way as to exhibit his animal nature ; poor Hunahpu is spotted as a reminder of his time amidst the Dead.
Living in LA I see gorgeous tattoos on a regular basis, I was inspired by the local color in tagging my fellows; now at last I will be able to identify the Twins quickly and easily.
I’m happy with the boots-yet another salacious shot.
End o’ day.
I will string them and I will record their movement, but for now they are at rest.
Be well, Lg
