Frida Kahlo - bust in high density plaster, antique white on mahogony base


  • Details
    I have finally gotten around to sculpting this iconic female artist---she's come out quite like an iconic queen... Nefertiti. I shall probably never duplicate this piece, as in order to balance it, I had to rebuild the shoulder in wet plaster directly onto the base. (My original mounting ....which was itself quite a process ended up unbalanced, and I had to break her off) NOTE: the nameplate was cracked under the protective tape during the process. It had been perfectly colored and so I simply glued it looks quite antiqued.
