Armadillo by Reptangle Armadillo by Reptangle
Nine banded armadillos don't really curl up like this but that is artistic license. I sculpted this guy around 1983. This is one of the "old line" of animal sculptures that we made when Windstone was first started.
He is about the size of a baseball and has black glass eyes.

At first I thought it was an inryo ( a small box carried by samurai / Japanese people for carrying medicines and small objects) Very life-like and beautifully sculpted!

The three banded armadillo can curl up like that, but this guy has nine nine bands on his back. My mistake.

They fit into the eye sockets and get glued in place after the piece is finished.
