Mummy cat


Mummy cat

The mummy is split into two parts: the head and body. For both the bandaging is obtained by wrapping with a slight overlap of each layer over the next. Some series of the canvas have a darker colour. On the sides of the head the eyes are identified by a sort of stud made by leaving a piece of darker canvas in sight.
