The eyes are commercial ceramic doll eyes. The helmet was built from a copper bowl I found at Pier 1. The camail hanging from the edge of the helmet is made of 90 brass triangles, each of which has a piece of blue leather attached to it with three one-quarter-inch model airplane bolts. The beard and moustache are ventilated on lace, which was then embedded in the polymer clay before curing.
