creepy and beautiful, I cannot stop staring at the contrast between innocent faces and the strangely beautiful rendering of their conjoined flesh.

They/it are/is simply divine!
I have an affinity with this piece, since Tasmanians are supposed to have two heads, or at least have a hidden scar where the superfluous one was removed.

I love the ambiguities and contradictions you have managed to so beautifully capture here.

Thank you sweety:)Interesting story. I never heard of that,but the whole area of split or extra selves is facinating.
I especialy wanted to show them as perfectly normal... in my universe at least.

They are so gorgeous! Love the tender look on them.I also like the baby blue hats and the soft white fabric loosely wrapped around them. I don't like the earrings and decoration on the hats....but that is my personal taste. I love clean work with an edge.I think you did a great job! Deficiently one off my favourites of your pieces.

:iconsleetwealth:
Sleetwealth Featured By Owner Apr 8, 2010  Professional Traditional Artist
Thanks:) I wish it was, but my work decides to be anti clean. Theres usualy grunge and unfinished ruinous texture. I did prefer them before I did the hats.

The beaded elements were an attempt to add constrasting sparkle to all the soft mattes. I had been wanting to add shiney gems or beads to my work.But I guess Ill have to rethink it.

Oh no. My English is not good enough to say what I mean...sorry.
I love your works grunge and unfinished ruinous look! I am just not a big fan of decorative accessories. Sometimes accessories are needed to make a piece work/speak and some pieces don't need the extras because they are already great without them.

Its okay I understand. I am not used to balancing accessories and your taste is probably right. This was one of very few that I was trying for sweetness and Im not so good at that.
