African Faerie

This is my "National Geographic" view on a small African faerie preparing for her hunt. She disguises herself in the carapaces of insects to get closer to her prey. Her weapons are a sinister spear and capture net. She is here repairing her net after a successful hunt.
Height of piece: 12 inches/30 cm.
