Marionette Xylon Chiros 001 by elyobkram Marionette Xylon Chiros 001 by elyobkram
Hi, His Name Is Xylon Chiros, Mistletoe Marionette.
In Root Greek: Xylon - Wood & Chiros - Hand.
From An Old Encyclopedia Of Horticulture.
His Birthday Is 16.08.2002
His Head Is Made From A Mistletoe Haustorium ( The Part Where A Mistletoe Attaches To A Host Tree ) The Same As Woody ( See My First DA Pic ), His Body Was Carved From Old Gum Tree & His Hands Are From An Old Chair Leg. They Took Me Ages To Carve As I'd Never Made Any Before, About 3 Hours. I Use Fencing Wire As Pins In The Joints. His Clothes Where The Seat Of Same Chair ! Eyes Of Black Glass. The Strings Are Pure linen Thread, The Strongest You Can Get & His Control Arm Is Basically A " T " With A Removable Leg Bar & Wire Leaver For His Hands. Xylon Doesn't Dance As Well As Woody But He Makes Up For It With What He Can Do With His Hands.
He's Hanging Around Watching Me Now With That Cheeky Look In His Eye ...

actually, chiros is pronounced "chIros", and is the nouns' genitive, means "of [the] hand". The nominative "[the] hand" is Chira (χείρα;), and is a female noun. :D
I dont know if the genetive was what you wanted, i just thought that since i'm greek i could help with the definition ;)

-my mistake- in the beginning, the pronounciation was meant to be "chirOs" ;P

this is incredible.
I was researching marionettes because I want to make them this year, but now I feel intimidated and I'm not sure I can after seeing this. Great job.

ThankYou ... I Know How You Feel, I Went To Our Local Gallery The Other Day & Just Couldn't Believe How Good The Watercolours Were ... I Was Definitely Intimidated As I've Been Trying This Medium For Years & Still Haven't Got What's In My Head Onto The Paper ... But I Wont Give Up ...
