    It's WONDERFUL!!!
    May ask how do you proceed to sculpt the folds of the clothes? Have you got a scheme in your mind ... reference picture ... some magic?

    Hi Eppi,

    Thanks for your comment!

    For the folds I studied lots of pictures of statues as well as paintings. And no magic involved, but rather lots of trial and error. I had limited sculpting experience and had to learn on the job. I’m shy to say some areas I re-did about 8 times.... yes, eight times... I must think I’ll live forever.

    Amazing result.
    And although the theme of Ancient Rome is not interesting for me, i will follow with interest the continuation of work on this composition.

    So well researched and executed it almost looks like it has escaped from some temple's freeze.Eagerly waiting to see your painted rendition.

    Yep! that's exactly my feeling when I'm playing with a project and start thinking to another one and the result is that it's awfully hard, for me, to finish something.
    And my grey hair remind me that I will NOT live forever! :p

    Just a quick update to show the project is still alive and progressing and why progress is so slow.
    I’m not a fast modeller anyway, but the main reason this project is taking so long is that I have difficulty making up my mind about the million options that keep presenting themselves along the way.
    For example, after deciding the wall’s end piece will not feature a plant, but a small statue, the question pops up what kind of statue: sandstone, bronze or marble?

    I finally opted for the marble one. Its colour harmonized best with the marble bench and floor.
    Hurrah, another few square millimeters finished!

    Next stop: Potted plants!

    Personally I liked the bronze one........;):)

    This is looking amazing, a stunning piece of modelling. I love all the different tones and textures in the setting.

    The bronze figure has great patina, but I agree it seemed to stand out too much.
