Listen to an audio clip

Let's feel Elvira first, she's on the left. Run your fingers all over her. Can you feel that she's quite angular and pointy, just like in the Art Deco style. Elvira is walking along to the right, so she is in profile. The string of beads round her neck swing out to the right and her handbag and fur stole round her neck swing out to the left.
Let's start at her head; she's got black curly hair, decorated with a long silver feather sticking out to the left. Feel her black eye and pointy, turned up nose and red lips. Around her neck is a white fox fur stole (which is a fur scarf). It's swinging out behind her to the left as she strides along. Trace left over it to feel the fox's head, with its green eyes, ears and nose between its front paws.
