Edgar Allan Poe's Twisted "Cat in the Hat"

One of a Kind Handmade Art Doll

This Mischievous, Edgar Allan Poe character is a One of a Kind Granny Wolf Original Art Doll. His hands, shoes and face are hand sculpted from polymer clay and detailed with acrylic paint. The tuxedo cats are also hand sculpted and detailed with faux fur and acrylic paint. This piece is sealed to be water resistant. Edgar Allan Poe's body is a soft, fabric sculpture over a wire armature. All of his clothes are handmade and fitted to suit his stature. Edgar is wearing a grey, gothic vest with a white shirt collar and silky black bowtie. He has foggy black dress pants, and a midnight black jacket. He has dark black hair made from Tibetan Lamb Hair and cold grey glass eyes. Edgar is artfully painted to look like a black and white photo to contrast the red and white Twisted Dr. Seuss “Cat in the Hat” theme.


Edgar’s hat is removeable and is handmade from strips of worn-out red and dingey white coarse fabric sewn together at the seams. A simple black raven peers down from atop of the hat. Edgar stands on a black stained wooden base. He has foot mounts to add stability but can also be lifted for closer inspection. Edgar is carrying a scrawny disgruntled tuxedo cat in his right hand and has miniature hand-sculpted scissors in his left hand. He also has strips of fabric over his left arm as he is preparing to make another hat out of his newest "pet". Edgar has sculpted retro black and white shoes that have real laces that were hand applied to add to his realism. The laces cannot come untied. Under his foot, Edgar Allan Poe stands on an oversized spool of thread that is wrapped with black thread that loops up and drapes through his open scissors. The spool is about 1 inch tall. This piece stands about 15 1/2 inches tall.
