Sculpture: Venus

This is the first female figure I sculpted. The hair style and dress are Classical Greek in design. I made no attempt to copy a Greek original. Rather, I studied hundreds of sculptures, and assimilated the information, so that I could create an original work that would look like a Greek original. As with all of the sculpture I created, I wanted it to look like it had been unearthed after a thousand years. Surprisingly, to get the "antiquing" on the surface to look right took longer than the original sculpting.
