This is a little (approx. 3" high) snake I made for a friend. The aim was to make a snake which could stand without support and without a base. Furthermore, I wanted to make the skin of the snake really glossy, as I hope you can see on the picture left (the photograph is a bit blurry, I didn't move, but I thought the camera was on automatic, which wasn't).

The idea for the coiling of the snake came from a lamp. I know, it sounds wierd, but it's true. It was a sort of standing lamp from which you could bend the neck and base.
