George Looks for Feedback on Gnome Idea

"Flying Gnome Clay Model by George Carruth"
Feedback for George on his flying gnome idea

I don’t always do little 3D sketches, but this flying Gnome idea grabbed my attention.  This is an exercise to explore how little flying Gnomes would look. OK, Gnomes have been around forever, but I wanted to make tiny flying Gnomes that were more part of the insect world.  So by giving them insect wings, they can flutter around from flower to flower.  This tiny sketch was originally a model for a full size cast stone plaque series, but as it came to life, the idea of turning it into a strong magnet for the fridge or file cabinet developed. So, what do you think? Do you even like the concept of tiny flying Gnomes? Do you picture them as full size cast stone plaques or a little fridge magnets?  Maybe both?  I’d love your input.  Good idea or too much time on my hands.  George
