OOAK Sculpted small Monkey Doll by Jennifer Tull Westberg
Small Zira
polymer clay, acrylic crystal eyes, mink and rabbit fur, armature wire, acrylic paint
8.5"
2003

I sculpted this monkey doll from a picture of an actual monkey named Zira that belonged to a member of my husband' s family. This monkey had boobs (which was impressive to me) and emotional problems (which was sad). I got to meet her in person when we visited his family in Michigan in 2004. Unfortunately Zira is no longer alive.
This doll belongs to my daughter Mina now.
