I don't even know the artist's name but Claire emailed these pictures and they are so gorgeous and impressive that I wanted to share. The only info that came with them was:
It takes him four hours to do a hand. Then he photographs it for posterity. I cannot imagine how he does the eyes so remarkably lifelike. It took him 10 hours to do the two-handed Eagle in picture #2.
I'll never attempt my puny shadow puppetry again.
