Ziggy is a handmade original, one-of-a-kind black-and-white tuxedo kitten art doll, hand painted and hand sculpted in paperclay by artist Elizabeth Ruffing.
It’s bedtime for Ziggy.
He’s wearing his yellow pajamas, and he’s supposed to be sound asleep. But his bright little eyes are wide open, and he’s ready for another adventure.
When Ziggy’s mother comes into the room, she sees only the white tip of his tail and one yellow foot sticking out from under the bed.
“What are you doing, Ziggy?” she asks, rolling her eyes.
“I’m taking my car for a ride through the tunnel,” answers Ziggy, in muffled tones.
When at last Ziggy has curled up in his bed, he is already making plans for the next day.
“I bet I could take my car for a ride under a waterfall,” he thinks, as he drifts off to sleep.
Ziggy is an original one-of-a-kind work of art, created from my own design and pattern. He is made from 100% cotton fabric which is sewn, stuffed, and completely hand painted with acrylic paints. I sculpted Ziggy’s face from paperclay, which I smoothed into his fabric head. His whiskers are made of painted cotton thread. They were threaded through the paperclay before it dried. No molds were used to create Ziggy.
Ziggy’s curly white-tipped tail supports him very well, so he can sit all by himself on a shelf or a table, or in a cabinet. His arms and legs are button-jointed with decorative metal buttons.
Ziggy’s pastel yellow onesie pajamas are painted on, as are his periwinkle blue collar, cuffs, and buttons. His kitty feet are needle sculpted to give definition to his little kitty toes. He is approximately 5 3/4 inches tall when sitting and about 8 1/4 inches long when stretched out.
Ziggy’s car is made of wood. I painted it pistachio green, with a purple interior. It’s about 3 1/2 inches long and about 1 3/4 inches wide.
Ziggy is signed and dated. Ziggy and his special car are sealed with matte varnish for protection and preservation. They are meant for display only. He comes with a hang tag, a certificate of authenticity, and a copy of his story.
Ziggy is available for adoption for $249.99. Please inquire to [email protected]
