Babilon

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone! So much time I had nothing for boast! This sculpture took so much time!

The subject of "Babilon" is a little bit biblical (Babilonian whores), a little bit History (cult of Goddess Ishtar and her priestess) and a lot of fantasy!

So, it was carved from walrus tusk, 34 cm tall.

Hello Natasha!

 

I am in awe!

 

Floating ribbons, strands of pearls, and the billowing hair raises the complexity tremendously for carving. One of those elements alone would be challenge enough to execute. As well, you have created gorgeous women, with beautiful hands and tiny fingers.

 

What a stunning accomplishment! The dedication and patience you have given to this deserves a hearty congratulations !!!

 

 

 

Just a wee bit of shop talk, I am curious about the white powder in the bottle cap. Is that something that you used to bring such a high gloss to the ivory?

Speechless in envy and admiration of your craft.

 

Superlatives are not good enough anymore to describe all those details and care taken in executing them.

You are working in voids that seem not possible to reach, yet you manage, and with perfection; no less.

 

Congratulation to the completition of this master-piece, and thank you for sharing. Kurt
