Even before Roop took me for a visit to the temple at Somnathpur I was already interested in Indian sculpture. When I came home, I wanted to try my hand at the style. It’s turned out reasonably well, as you can see. I had a lot of fun figuring out the most important elements of the style, but it’s still recognizably my work. I’m sure I’ll give it another try later on.

The full set of pictures is on Picasaweb, but be warned of nudity, she isn’t wearing much except for some jewelry. I really need to learn to take better pictures: stretching the color with digikam is easy enough, that isn’t the problem. But the distortion when making a picture of a statuette 25cm high is pretty fierce. this one came out quite well, but others have a very distorted head. I’m not sure what I’m doing wrong…
And I really need to start making good pictures because I’m just too productive: not only can I not affort casting all pieces I make in bronze, even if I could afford it, it would take too much room. There are two statuettes at the foundry now, three in the icebox and two are in the making.
So I guess I’ll have to start trying to sell them — after figuring out things
like prices, making a website and learning how to make good pictures.
