Skagboys - marionette skeleton

A few months ago I was commissioned to build a skeleton marionette for the cover shot of Irvine Welsh's forthcoming book 'Skagboys'. The novel is a prequel to 'Trainspotting', which if you remember the original cover had skull faces on it.
It took quite a while to hand carve this detailed marionette. Originally it was only for hire for the photo shoot but the publishers liked the puppet so much they decided to buy it outright.

I have been sitting on the images for a while but now I have noticed them on Amazon amongst other places so it it ok to show them now.
