St. Peter, Mixed Media Decorative Icon

2009
Mixed Media
18" x 22" x 6"

A tabletop icon...the photo doesn't show it, but the back side is fully decorated, as well. I do this with all my free-standing pieces. This is St. Peter Lorre, finest actor of his generation--unfortunately often remembered in cartoons for his unusual voice. But he was much more than that, as can be seen in such films as M, Casablanca and Mad Love. I mixed ideas both Gothic and Machine Age for this icon and I'm very pleased with the result. That's a real ventriloquist dummy hand, by the way. I got it from a ventriloquist supply company. Yep.
