Hi Sandy, most queer that I happened to check on this. (I was previously commenting on your Bali pot). Funny thing is your Cyclop is one of the well known characters in our greek mythology and I did not expect a non-greek to make such a doll. In case you do not know he belongs to a famous epic work by Homer (antique greek poet) and his notorious greek hero Odysseus who had to stick a sharp pole on his single eye to render him blind and get away from his cave. He was a giant monster figure ferocious but stupid alright. It is a long story, and widely sold as an adventure book for children all over the world. Name is ODYSSEIA. Just in case somebody would like to make a gift of it to your friend. I guess it exists in engligh. Michailia

Thank You for the info. I didn't really know anything about him. I just enjoyed making him. I've made 7 little monsters now. And given them all away. :)

Forgot to tell you that he already has a name of his own. It is POLYFIMOS (translates as "'very famous") but does not exist as a name anymore nor has it been ever recorded as a name for anybody else in our mythology or history. Michailia

You are welcome Sandy. So now you know in case any of the kiddos who got them feels intrigued to find out more. I also loved the way you set him up for photography. Among rocks and plants, his very proper environment. I also make cloth dolls -among other crafts-, I am self taught and practically have also given them all away as gifts except for three I made for my 2 daughters.

I just love this! I love the Greek myths anyway, but have never seen a cyclops doll. I love it in felt, too.

Hi Tova Dian, happened to be around and saw your comment. I am glad every time I hear of somebody appreciating our myths and culture. Sandy has really made a very nice doll out of this infamous cyclop.
