For my third and final Halloween room guardian I thought Cerberus would be the perfect choice. Man was he lot of work though! I decided to base the heads off of thin faces hounds like greyhounds and borzois because I had never seen one like that before. I also knew that out of these three guardians, I really wanted to do a snake tail. Ironically, Cerberus has been depicted as having a snake tail which I didn't know until I looked it up.
Cerberus from Greek legend was the guardian of the underworld. He stood at the gates to prevent the dead from escaping. There have been many depictions of Cerberus over the years. I took inspiration from many sources to come up with my own unique interpretation. Since he bridges the gap between our world and the underworld, he must have access to every stage of life and death. Three hound heads, one from the living, one from the dead, one from in between and a serpent tail to speak to the newly dead in order to take judgement on their souls.
This listing is for a handcrafted one of a kind original art doll. Cerberus has a deep dark amethyst crystal heart and its back stands about 7" tall. It has coat of high quality faux fur with some hand dyed detail. The necks have ball and socket armatures inside that can be posed in many different ways without wearing out over time. It's forelegs, and tail are also fully poseable, but they have a wire armature so they must be posed with slightly more care. The ears on each head are connected with a ball and socket so you can reposition them. Its teeth were made with plastic so they are slightly flexible and will not break, but please handle your room guardian as you would a piece of art. It is not a toy and should not be used as such.

What is a room Guardian??Room Guardians are small creatures that protect one's home from negative spirits and energies. These friends can be easily placed on window sills, kitchen shelves, dressers, or wherever to keep watch over the room. Each guardian has a soft faux fur coat and each is individually sculpted from the wire frame to the clay face and hands, so no two are alike. Room Guardians are not plush, they have a solid body but their arms, tails, and necks are bendable and Inside each of their chests is a unique crystal heart to give each one a different energy. These little guys have a lot of character and they love having a home to watch over.

1. How did you come up with the room guardian concept?
The idea caught fire when a friend and I were walking through an antique store. On one of the bookshelves sat two stuffed foxes wearing riding clothes. I contemplated buying them because one could convince themselves that their expressionless stares were actually seeing and watching over the room. It was as if they were alive though they wer
