Buste Femme Maya

For this bust of an ancient Maya female my inspiration and the references used for her come from Maya art and codex inside where so many characters are depicted. I would like to work on a female face and also on the maya culture I really like (as the whole precolombian world). I tried to include morphological specificities in the anatomy as the elongated skull very common in the maya world but its quite hard to erase his own cultural visions and easthetic ideals (especially regarding human beauty), for example the forehead would have been more flat and receding.

8cm Bust. Super Sculpey Firm, Milliput, snails.

this is a resin cast with a oxidation patina finish (acrylic paints).
