Mischievious creatures

Postby Erika Takacs » Wed Dec 19, 2007 11:14 am

Like Pehiatt and Carmelo, I've been always interested in mythology as well.
"Manó" (pronounce Mah-noh) is the Hungarian word for goblin. They are somewhat different from their English counterparts. They’re present in Hungarian fairy tales and folklore, much adored by children as they are mischievious but very adorable, friendly creatures. So much so, a lot of parents love to nickname their little ones "Manó"!

1"x2", paper mache, painted with watercolours and
onze paint.

Here’s another little guy. He’s asleep but when he’ll wake up, I’m sure he’ll be up to something.

Love the Mano y Mano E. And thank you for the lead into the Hungarian myth about them. I'll have to check that out.

Aren't they cute! I like the baby look the second one has....makes it look just adorable. ...the way you did the face on the first is very well done

Looks real good. A lot of detail for somthing that small.
Perfection is what drives an artist.
The inability to achieve perfection is what creates a work of art.

They are so beautiful and in harmony, not scary at all. Pieces like this make us love and admire art and its creator.

Yes, E, watercolours run into the tiniest cracks and crevices and create this wonderful effect. I still have to figure out how to control it even more.
