I wouldn't mind Apollo for myself, of course only once Pixi is done with him :)
Nice setting!

Thanks W and Lil...you'd never guess that he came from the French equivalent of 'Poundstretchers'...!!
(sorry, Lil...don't know what it would be in Canada...but, cheap shop!)
...the Chinese factory must have, temporarily, found a down and out artist, I think...He doesn't have squint eyes or short arms...or anything amiss, if you know what I mean!!! lol!!!

Lol! Pixi! He did develop a nasty little crack in his loincloth last winter, though...there's a puddle that gathers...I think I'll have to give him a blanket this year!!

Perhaps that's why he has such a serene look on his face ;))
