Food Glorious Food...

I just can't help myself...
Since having my daughters, some of the animals I once viewed as 'disgusting' or 'morbid' just because they 'do what they do'- have taken on a whole new light.  
For example; Vultures are surely associated with death and morbidity.  Well at least in the most general census of birds.  However, I can't help it but to think of the committee of Vultures asking "What we gonna do?" reminiscent of Ringo, George, Paul and John (The Jungle Book) - or the chorus of Vultures singing "Food, Glorious Food".

"...Flesh picked off the dead ones
Rank, rotten or chewed
Soon we'll be the fed ones

Just thinking of putrid meat
Puts us in a mood

For food, glorious food
Marvellous food
Fabulous food
Beautiful food
Magical food

Glorious food!!..."
Ice Age 2: The Meltdown - John Powell
Original Score Written by Lionel Bart - Oliver!

Sort of steals the fear factor away from these birds eh?

Thank goodness for the likes of Pixar & Disney that these majestic creatures can find a new light as a sort of "warm & fuzzy" - or - at the very least, with a jovial sense of humor. 
It is the more warm and fuzzy variety that I bring you as a Handful of Vulture.

The Handful Series was designed to give you the absolute freedom to customize as you wish - creating your very own personalized handmade and heartfelt gift.  Color changes (or lack there of) is completely at purchaser’s discretion. The use of embroidery techniques or purchased plastic additions may be employed to finish your doodle.  Basically - There is NO right or wrong way to make your doodle.

A Handful of Vulture contains 7 pages of pattern instructions, with detail oriented photographs and instructions to help you bring this happy, 6 inch little friend together.
