A dinosaur in my Cabinet

A small dinosaur of undetermined species and unknown era took place in the Cabinet. The skull comes from secret excavations under my dollhouse. I built the display box for the monster. That box was easy to make, because it wasn't Godzilla-sized, just tiny bat-sized.

I also added some shells in the display table

And found a new home for my naturalised seahorse.

Egyptian cat mummy

The Curiosities Cabinet is proud to present two new additions to the Egyptian fund. Two cat mummies of the Late Period coming from the necropolis of Tell el-Ashmounein. Of course they are 1:12 scale and made of FIMO, the wrapping is particularly meticulous but not made of linen [I didn't have fine linen ].

Art Nouveau carpet

At last I finished this carpet. I can't remember how many hours I have worked on this one, but I'm satisfied with the results. I eventually have the colours and the the design I planned.
