Dear Mahesh,

Last time I made “Mena” for Periyava. This time I made Periyava out of Mannequin (Wooden model structure). The inspiration came from my daughter.

A few months back,  my younger daughter wanted a Mannequin to play a dress up game with it. And she requested me to sew some clothes for it. Then suddenly an idea came in my mind,  why not I paint Periyava on a Mannequin and dress him up. So I searched Internet for a good Periyava picture to be a model for my project. It took me a while to complete this project. Because it’s kind of new to me and experimenting by adding features one at a time, painting HIM etc. Not only it took a while to complete the project, but also it took time to take picture of HIM for some unknown reasons. Finally today He gave me a permission to send it across. As always thought of sharing it in your blog.
