Numbat puppet Production process

My latest puppet is a numbat tabletop puppet. Its working tittle is "the last of the termite-inators...".

For this beastie, i used "Arbortech power chisel" and Flexcut hand chisels. The numbat is carved from salvaged Australian hardwood (I think it might actually be "redgum". I ended up using "Cane Toad Leather" for the ears...this leather has awesome texture and is very unique in its thickness to stiffness ratio!

The puppet is 90% complete and I just couldn't resist sharing the production shots thus far.
