Egyptian statue replica




This is what I love the most about creating custom statues...You never know what they will ask you to sculpt next. My latest project is a replica of the rare Egyptian statuette of Seshat-goddess of wisdom, knowledge and writing. My client provided a photo of the original piece, which is in Louvre, as the only reference. I always loved Egyptian art so this project has been a joy to do
Besides, I still remember a thing or two from my college years of studying history of art. That helped me research missing details. The sculpture is about 11"tall.
