Kush: Gold,Iron and Blood by Sleetwealth Kush: Gold,Iron and Blood by Sleetwealth
6" polymer sculpture Ghost of Kush. This is my fantasy of what a dancer of that civilization looked like.

wow! itīs just amazing. I feel something between fear and love for that creature..because in a way it is so ugly and in another way it is so beautyful!!
great work!

Thank you so much:D I feel the same way. She is a ghost and so trapped looking as she did when she died,but was a dancer.

Yes. But she is so beautyful. She seems to live in another world. Like sheīs away but her body still here. Wonderful. I love your works. How long did yo work on her?? I could imagine that this is a really difficult and hard work isnīt it??

The faces take me 3-4 days of work.Thats maybe 5-8 hr sessions.with small breaks.
the whole figure can take me anywhere from 2 weeks to a month to paint ,wig and complete. it takes a lot of focus and discipline.

That sounds very difficult to me!...Especially discipline^^"
Your works are so amazing and they reminds me on Alice in wonderland or a nightmare or a fairytale. So wunderful!

Much of your work is lively and looks so very, startlingly organic. So far I feel like this one tops a number of your works in terms of believability. This bust looks as if it were truly alive. The shapes of her eyes, the look on her face, the starved, grayed and bloody skin, and what looks to be the fatal wound from her neck down. Creating life that once was is just as impressive to me as the creation of a being alive and ticking. I'd dare to say this is one of your best.

Thank you:) I feel so much pride for her.She is my most realistic creation and also one of of my more uncensored ones.
I think she passes through the art doll genre and enters almost a historical representation that I could see in a museum if it wernt for her being sheer fantasy!

I worry she wont sell like my cute ones do,but I had to make her now ,she was so strong and demanded it.

You see, that's something that interests me now. You say that it's more "uncensored" than some of your other works and I wonder what those look like. I agree with some of the limits of this site, but it does prevent some good content from getting here. I tell you what though, though not museum worthy I'm sure historical aficionados would get a kick out of it.

Yea, cute sells pretty easy. But this is one I'd take home if I could. Not to mention it probably came out so well because you didn't cater to anyone that time. So great.

I have some worlds in my mind that I explore. its gets very complex in ritual. the people there are different is all. Dark in aesthetic by our standards but, normal or highly honorable for them. We just dont understand and interpret it as horror. I dont.

I think I can post anything here.Its just a matter of me opening up.Some of my cute things are uncensored and from my heart too. The ones I made to sell were mostly sexy fairies because they were popular.Flame for instance is one of mine that is cute and strong!

That's very enlightening. I tell you what though. For any degree of macabre I notice in your work, I haven't seen anything that I could call "ugly" or "unpleasant". It's an exotic, unique sort of beauty the way I see it. Not like that really matters what I think anyway. But, yea, there you go. Overall from the glimpses we can get through your work here, it seems like a beautiful world to me.

Well, if it's just a matter of keeping some of your work to yourself, that's alright with me. I know someone who has much work that's never and probably never will make it here and there's no problem with that. As for Flame. Cute and strong indeed. That's one of the things I love about your sculptures, they possess great strength, and I love strength in women.
