Figurehead statue

 

Done in cooperation with other Memphis artists / designers for a restaurant in San Diego's Skyview Hotel.

2013: The model recently went looking for it, couldn't find it..

2 views of same statue (reinforced hydrocal)

We cast a model, nearly nude, with her hand almost touching her chest. We sculpted
the hair. Called model back in and redid her hands. A costume designer had sewn a dress, and we put it on the figure. It was stitched up the back.

Then a big cloak was added. We put fabric stiffener on all the cloth and a big steel
bracket in her back. The faux finish was painted by Scott Blake, who also coordinated this job.
