I am a needle felter, painter and pattern designer with a passion for animals, portraits and still lifes. This item is something I have had in my shop on Etsy. Click on the Visit My Shop button to see what is currently available.
Needle felted David Ben Gurion puppet is handmade in Israel and made of wool. This puppet is a portrait of an Israeli icon; he was the one of its founders of Israel and the first Prime Minister of Israel. This wool sculpture is an art object, it’s not meant to be a toy. The Ben Gurion puppet is wool sculpture, a conversation piece and a piece of Jewish art.
The puppet is : 20″ tall x 13″ wide
*Needle felting is meshing raw wool together with a specially barbed needle by repeatedly stabbing the wool with the needle. The wool binds together to create very strong forms.
These handmade sculptures are not toys and not recommended for small children. It is recommended that they are kept behind glass to avoid dust.
I am an American textile Artist living in the Middle East. Im from Greenfield, Indiana and I live in Jaffa, Israel; My family and I, our four cats, two turtles, and our Bull Terrier Louie live a multi-cultural life. Ever since I can remember Ive been making things! Im inspired by my three girls and a love for art, animals, gardening, travel and photography. I use the textile technique of needle felting to create animals, dolls, masks and puppets. I started sewing costumes and making toys for my girls when they were little; after we moved to Israel I started a business and wrote two books based on making beautiful things for children. Today my artistic focus has changed to making art for adults who are in touch with their inner child! I have also been painting portraits and still lifes and accept commissions.
