Arlecchinno

Commedia Dell'Arte continues to intrigue and inspire me in my art doll making. After I completed sweet flirtatious Columbina, I continue working on her beloved, Arlecchinno.

Arlecchinho is a low class personage, usually plays role of a sly servant, who wants to cheat his masters, but because of his silliness, always fails and gets himself in trouble. Arlecchinno is a man-child, who often frustrates lovely and clever Columbina, but she always forgives his shortcomings and takes him back.

At this point I have already completed the building of Arlecchinno's body, and ready to work on his costume.

I am rather pleased with him at the moment, he looks wild already!
