A finger monkey!
You've probably seen photos of them on the internet like I have. Finger monkeys are just darling! Would I ever like to hold one on my finger! I doubt I will ever get to do that, so I just had to sculpt one. Of course, I took artistic license, once again. The ones I saw in photos had dark hair, but I wanted to keep with my own http://www.blogger.com/img/blank.gifshabby chic look so I put white hair on mine and gave her a pale pink ruffle around her neck!
When she is not on your finger, she is quite content to hang around on a tapered candle for display. Just don't push her down on it so you don't break her little arms and legs. She does have wire armatures in them for extra strength, but she should be handled gently.
She is about 3 inches long, not including her little topknot on her head. You can read more about her here:
