Catcher in the Rye

Holden from the Catcher in the Rye is played by Rylan Rabbit. Rylan was born in Penang. Educated at Cambridge, his acting career began at the Traverse Theatre in Edinburgh. He went on to join the RSC, where he first worked with the director Sam Mendes, and in the mid-90s he began his long association with the National Theatre. His many awards include the 2003 Laurence Olivier Theatre Award for Best Actor, for his role in Uncle Vanya at the Donmar Warehouse. He is appearing as Holden Caulfield in the Royal production of Catcher in the Rye at the Noel Coward Theatre in London until 15 January.

He is glazed porcelain head, hands and shoes. His body and tail are grey material stuffed and wired to pose. He comes with a wood base. I hand sewed his tiny shirt, tie,underwear and his coat and famous red wool hat. His clothes are removable.

I sold him on Etsy.

He is part of a series iam doing on animal people. I recreate some of my favorite characters in animal form. Half the fun is trying to figure out what animal best represents a special person. Not only by their look but also their personalitity traits.  

Here are some all lined up before I assemble them.
