Inigo Montoya as portrayed by Alejandro Diego Narwhal

Though he was successful on stage, Alejandro Diego Narwhal’ s style is so cinematic it’s hard to imagine him acting in any other medium. His is a loathsome yet hilarious comic villain, which he is particularly adept at portraying in his close-ups. There, his range of facial ticks, stares and what-nots tell the story. When he isn’t outright villainous, he is adept at being vapid, smarmy, obsequious or just a little behind.

As you can see I sculpted the head, fins and boots in porcelain. I sewed the soft body over a wire skelaton so he is easier to dress and pose. He is part of a series of animal people portraying characters from movies, books and TVland. Isn’t he a fun one? He is from the movie ” The Princess Bride”

Inigo Montoya is a fictional character in William Goldman‘s 1973 novel The Princess Bride. In Rob Reiner‘s 1987 film adaptation he was portrayed by Mandy Patinkin. In both the book and the movie, he resided in the fictional country of Florin but came from Spain.

It’ll be fun making his clothes and sword. How do I make a tiny sword. I have no idea but I’m sure I’ll come up with something. Got any ideas?
