Ok heres another WIP... Amulet is a santos like religious statue of a royal child who was a seer. In later centuries tinkered into a jointed doll.The ornate keyhole shaped screen in her chest covers a nitcho that contains the mumified remains.
Ive since painted her and given her blond dreadlocks. Im hoping to find a good shadow box to put her inside. I also removed the sculpted ruffled collar because I decided a real cloth one would be better.
you have such an ability to give birth to a great concept,and make it look as if it..could have evolved to be no other thing....they really have wonderfully unique presences....this one is especially bizarre and fascinating
I assume this one is one that begged to be created? Very imaginative and interesting. Nice to see something different than the standard sculpts! I cannot do this kind of work, it is nice to see it when someone can!
No not realy. I started with nothing in mind except that I wanted a keyhole nitch in the chest of a child. I wanted to continue exploring the theme that" Still she has no name " began. Then I just let it go where it wanted to since there are no demands or must be 's for this peice. If I could survive on it all my work would be this unstandard.
Id think there should be room for both ,but unfortunatly its usually goes one way. Theres alot of reasons. Its a heck of alot easier for one thing to just make a pretty thing and not think too carefuly about concept. But it works out ok for me. I can take time to explore and play with ideas.
