This magical creature is an Irish Elk (aka Melagolcero), needle felted by Noemi Smith of California. She was inspired by the ones from the movie The Hobbit! Noemi needle felted his body with Living Felt Core Wool, then needle felted over with a combination of colors that you can find in the Living Felt New Zealand Corriedale Kit Pilgrim’s Harvest. This elk is big too, she says, “almost the size of a Maltese!”
Noemi tells us, “I mainly do figurative Art but my other passion is to needle felt and I love to make animals!!”
Well we love your animal and we hope to see many more!
