little people

little people, originally uploaded by Bromirski.

Finally! I've scanned the slide that has the little people! The top cave is about three inches around and the bottom cave is 2"x3". The people are made of mostly cut paper, I had to use tweezers and a magnifying glass - those pink cheeks are TINY. The three baskets are really woven - I made a very tiny tiny weave and cut out the basket shapes. Here is a much better even more zoomed-in look.

Those guys are the shinto spirits of the scholar's rock. They're everywhere! The whole painting is here. Thumbs-up from William Bailey! Thumbs-up from Pat Adams!
