    Nickie found this tiny Opossum dead on her Dad's porch. She made a body and slip cast the tail. The tree branch was sculpted over a wire to match a reference picture she found and attached to a 5" diameter marble base. She always comes up with the cutest ideas!

    For those who don't know the difference between being an artist and being a taxidermist, here it is. Nickie ain't a taxidermist.
