New piece in progress

I’ve been working on “Sphinx” for a few months now. It’s lifesize (for a sphinx, I guess), and is paper mache and plaster over foam (you can see the Pink Panther-pink bottom edges where the laminated foam chunks show through). I’m trying to get away from making so many molds! Right now I’m wrestling with the question of whether or not to add a ceremonial beard, worn by both male and female rulers in ancient Egypt. Am leaning toward the beard, then a final texturing and coat of wax.

See this live and in person at Open Studios tomorrow!
