I meant to get a photo of Light standing next to this before hubby hung it for me but I forgot too. It is 3'8" tall. The base is Styrofoam and it is overlaid with layers of paper mache. It took me well over two years to complete - partially because I tried moving it before it was dry once and it broke in two so I had to reinforce the fracture with a couple of paint stirring sticks (when it broke, I lost heart and didn't work on it for at least nine months), otherwise it would have been all Styrofoam and paper mache. When you consider what it is made of, it is surprisingly heavy. We hung it on curtain tie-backs.
