Ribbon Eel, Rhinomuraena quaesita, Male


Fine merino (16/19 mic, roving, minimum 6 colours), silk fibers, glass eyes. Wetfelted, ruffled, a small fingerpuppet, felted around a template.


As I have always been inspired by nature I was looking for animals threatened by extinction. I chose the Rhinomuraena quaesita also known as the leaf- nosed moray eel or bernis eel. I felted a small fingerpuppet, only showing details like fearsome jaws and staring eyes.
