Close Encounters

I went to a two year old's birthday party on Saturday, which provided the opportunity to create serious sculptures with play-doh. I was pleased that I was able to convince a cute and inquisitive four year old that this was an alien and that aliens had antlers. He didn't seem so sure about the beanie. Those things that look like wings are really hands, but the arms kept getting shorter and shorter, since I was having trouble getting them to stick to the body.

I used to use clay to create these antlered aliens all the time when I was in high school. This is the original.
