Since I was a child I adored the tale of an old witch, Babayaga that lived in a house upon a chicken leg.
I began making these little guys in 2011 from the scraps of my many bird installations over the years. My love for houses and birds is combined with my love for the old Eastern European fairy tale to create these cute and creepy creatures.
They are made of basswood with hand colored carbon transfers upon plastic and feather bodies. The roofs are all hand made from tiny wood dollhouse shingles.
Rex's base is made from stained from a varnished tree branch which is fixed to a 2.75"x1.5"x2.25" stained and waxed pine block.The base is coated with textured acrylic that is painted to mimic grass.
The total height of the house on the branch is 8.5"
The piece is signed on the bottom.
Each Babayaga House is a unique and one of a kind object. A lot of love and detail goes into each one of these little guys.
They feed off the souls of children and easy to take care of.
