a lost wax cast of the crucifixion. after release and chasing I then added three layers on gold leaf and sealant.
the roman (on left) was left the most intact, Jesus was completely destroyed and Mary Magdalene (on right) lost half of her body.
skulls made from paper, glue, clay and steel.
the steel skull is a lost wax cast. the glue skull is made from elmer’s glue I let become malleable yet still a little tacky then sculpted.
originally intended to be ashtrays as a commentary on smoking.
these are more sophisticated versions of studies I made in the past.
