An tEach Uisce

Sci fi/Fantasy image by

Also known as a kelpie, an tEach Uisce is a very nasty water demon.  Appearing as a horse to young men it would entice them onto it's back and then drag them to their deaths beneath the waves.  In some tales they can also appear as a handsome yougn man to maidens, only distiguishable by traces of seaweed in his hair. This sculpture is around 6 inches tall and 9 inches long.  Like all my sculptures this is mostly super sculpey painted in acrylics, the seaweed mane and tail are made of cold porcelain which is a cornstarch based clay that is much more flexible and forgiving for thin areas than super sculpey.  I admit that it's not a very enticing horse I know I'd never get on it's back, my intention was to show the kelpie at it worst, maybe walking along the shore gloating over it's most recent victim.
