 'Copper Tooth'

This piece of sculpture is of a creature with a varied and aggressive past. A warrior who posseses little love or compassion, so patiently waits till you fall  asleep, to steal away the warmth of your dreams.

Having a Tooth replaced with Copper after leaving the original embedded in the neck of a 'dream demon' at an early age, gave him his distinctive name.

Through many centuries of battling for, stealing and then feeding off dreams, many injuries occur. ( Have you ever had a dream, then can not quite remember it ? If so that is because Copper Tooth will have stolen it from you ). Sometimes body parts have to be replaced to keep functioning. The left leg having been torn off and replaced with a mechanical one, it in turn being ripped away, in some unconscious realm, leaving just a clock work stump.
