Merrick, The Elephant Man

"There's something I've been meaning to ask you for some time, now..."

"What's that?"

"Can you cure me?"

"No. We can care for you, but we can't cure you."

"No. I thought not."


A toy version of Joseph Carey (aka John) Merrick, also known as The Elephant Man. In spite of what many people assumed of him upon sight, he was a highly affectionate, caring and intelligent man for whom I have the utmost respect.


I decided to publish the pattern, so see my profile if you are interested.
