Malicious Manticore Room Guardian FOR AUCTION by AnyaBoz Malicious Manticore Room Guardian FOR AUCTION by AnyaBoz

The auction ends Sunday October 23rd at 6:00pm Central…

I wanted to do a series of beast and demon room guardians for Halloween, so I started shaping this winged body up. It was initially going to be a completely different demon creature, but the head I sculpted just didn't feel right for the body I made. That's when I decided it would make a perfect manticore! The first head I sculpted will be the next room guardian I'll post, but I haven't finished it yet. Anyway, I'm so psyched about this manticore. I tried some new sculpting techniques on the face and I love how it came out! 


For those unfamiliar with the mythical beast, the manticore was said to be a horned beast with body of a red lion, bat-like wings, a scorpion or dragon tail, and the head of a man with rows of sharp teeth. This room guardian is my personal take on the beast of legend, with clawed human hands and a blood soaked face, definitely a creature worth having on your side. Your room is sure to be free of bad spirits with this guy protecting it! 

This listing is for a handcrafted one of a kind original art doll. This manticore has a carnelian crystal heart. It stands about 12" with a wingspan of 18".  It has coat of high quality faux fur with some hand dyed detail. The neck has a ball and socket armature that can be posed in many different ways without wearing out over time. It's arms, wings, and tail are also fully poseable, but they have a wire armature so they must be posed with slightly more care. Its horns, tail barb, and wing spikes were made with plastic so they will not break, but please handle your room guardian as you would a piece of art. This 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
