The Oracle of Luminosity (Transmogrified Art)

The Oracle of Luminosity is a transmogrified piece of art. 

Transmogrification is the act of taking old art that is broken, discarded or damaged and re-imagining it into something new. Anything can be subjects to transmogrification with the only rules being that the original piece began as art and that the changes you make upon are it substantially alter it. 

The original bust was found at an Estate Sale, its base was broken and lying in pieces in a corner. It had never been painted, its white ceramic unglazed. 

After repairing the breaks and going through a complete cleaning, the face was then repainted in layers into the form you see here and sprayed with a triple gloss coating.
