Image of the Day - The Grotto of the Golden Skull (Second Stage)
This might well be my favorite sculpture to date. Modeled on a medieval burial cave. Statues of Mary and Joseph rest high at the top of the piece with piles of golden skulls below. The piece is big. Its 29" x 24" and stands 16" high. I used a pearlescent glaze over everything but the grotto skull to give it an almost heavenly glow. It needs a little tweaking to finish it up.
