Lord of the Flies Room Guardian FOR AUCTION! by AnyaBoz Lord of the Flies Room Guardian FOR AUCTION! by AnyaBoz

For this room guardian I had a clear image of a boar demon covered in toothy growths with greenish fur and black mane, but there were no classical demon depictions I could find with a boar head. The body of the manticore was initially made for the boar, but it just was not right at all. That's when I decided I could do my own interpretation of the pig's head in William Golding's classical novel "The Lord of the Flies" that is used as a metaphor for the evil of man. I'm more than pleased with how this one came out and I'm so happy I got to expand upon the open ribcage idea that I only touched upon with the Fell Damarras Room Guardian Commission. 

-----------------------

The Lord of the Flies (or Beelzebub) is the embodiment of pestilence, disease, and corruption. He normally takes on the form of a demonic fly, but sometimes he has been known to appear as a wild boar covered in rot and disease with hollow insides and a rotting heart. The boar's terrifying visage shows itself to men with hearts susceptible to evil and distortion. It has the power coax them with its gentle voice to commit heinous acts against others without conscience or empathy. 

This listing is for a handcrafted one of a kind original art doll. The Lord of the Flies has a visible emerald crystal heart inside it's open ribcage. It stands about 7", not including the spines and 12" long.  It has coat of high quality faux fur with some hand dyed detail and a few patches of curly lamb fur. The neck has a ball and socket armature 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. Its teeth, spines, and ribs 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

That is the most accurate depiction I've ever seen. I couldn't have made a creature for "Lord of the Flies" any better myself!

Awesome job! :D It's a shame you didn't know about the movie Princess Mononoke by Studio Ghibli (one of my all time favourites), you could have used the giant boar in that as inspiration. vignette2.wikia.nocookie.net/s… That's the boar god, Okkoto, he has a demon form later in the movie. The face of your boar really reminds me of him, especially the eyes. :)

Oh I totally know about Okkoto and the boars in Ghibli, but I think the connection was 
subconscious. I just wanted to make a disease ridden boar and I think no matter what, 
that subject matter is going to resemble the mononoke boars haha. I didn't want to copy
anything and I really felt the connection to the Lord of the Flies book with this one.

Ohh, okay, awesome :3  Yeah xD It's pretty cool actually, that it ended up accidentally resembling the Mononoke boars :) Mm, I get what you mean :) Awesome posable for definite ^.^ Your work always amazes me and I take a lot of inspiration from it ^.^

And of course I'll take the connection to a ghibli character design as a compliment. 
Princess Mononoke is one of my favorite movies after all!:glomp:

I literally though the same thing! It's amazing though, I love the idea of having all the toothy growths and how his underside is all rotted looking.
