Nova, 16" SOLD by The Lynton Teddy Bear Company Sign In or Register to add photos

Nova is a new bear in my 'Paws the Moment Collection'. These bears are a hybrid between a traditional teddy and more realistic bears. They have more detail than some of my other bears - especially in their paws and each one also has a small tail. They represent many hours of work as they are more complex in design, often including extra joints and armature to allow more 'pose ability'. Nova is Hubble's sister, a beautiful feminine bear made from a luxurious 25mm long straight and dense pile mohair in a golden 'fudge' colour. This lovely fabric is soft and tactile like real animal fur. Nova stands approximately 16" tall and 12" sitting (to tips of her ears). She is 8- way jointed with nut and bolt fixings at her shoulders, legs and double neck joints. I have also added cotter pin joints in her upper arms so they can twist from this point in addition to moving up and down so her paws turn. She a has a padded wire armature in her legs, lower arms and down her back which allows gentle posing both in a sitting position and on 'all fours'. Please note that although the metal is strong it may not stand up to rough handling. She is stuffed with polyester and has a bag of steel shot in her tummy to give a nice weight. Nova's face has been shaped by needle and scissor sculpting and then hand shaded using a combination of marker pens, pencils and acrylic paint to add character. She has black glass eyes and a black hand sculpted Fimo clay nose with an embroidered mouth. Her paw pads are highly detailed with light brown ultra suede trapunto applique which has then been extensively sculpted with pulled toes and hand shaded details. She wears a black leather collar with a Tibetan silver bear paw charm. Nova has now been sold.
