This sculpture shows a great amount of movement. It is very cartoony and playful which I love! It really has an upbeat and exciting color pattern and choices of shapes create great contrast and gives it a real texture.

Storyteller - Doll with puppets. --> I like the idea of the storybook backdrop - this could work really well for a set! -->Although I have decided against doing the full show and set, perhaps I could make one section to display the puppets at the end?
