Barbie Doll..Sea Maiden and Turtle

Sometime ago, after attending a wonderful Art Retreat in Washington MO, where I met  Chaksa Peacock   in person.  We were all part of a online group called Holy Moly Mackeroly!    Holy Moly Maceroly...from 3 Art Stamps to the Smithsonian...:Reflections on the Business of Art and the Art of Life is a book written by Gloria Page.   We would often share our projects and Chaksa aka Mai-Liis had extra Barbie dolls as she used them in her projects.  She shared two of them with me for a clay project I wanted to try. 
I made a mold and then cast the doll head into clay.  It did not turn out the way I thought it would.

The whole project fell apart and I smashed it down onto the table. After doing so, something started to come forward and I managed to make something with that pitiful casting. I call it Sea Maiden and Turtle.
