Olga Mareeva hand-knits mohair into the most squee-worthy animal sculptures you’ve ever seen. Ever. I wasn’t even aware that I needed a mohair dachshund until now. How did I go all this time not knowing? And how did you?
Her work is just mind-blowing. Those three cat heads below at the top right corner… Do you see them? They’re bookmarks. How is a person supposed to concentrate on a book with that face looking at you? And her dogs and hamsters and rabbits and hedgehogs are all equally lovable. Then there’s her mice… I just can’t.
Clearly, I’m too twitter-pated to write today. You’re just going to have to look for yourself.
