Once all the preparations had been made, the carving process could begin. The piece was created in two halves, preventing damages and enabling the incorporation of metal work to stabilise the sculpture. To ensure the proportions were accurate, I created a basic outline of the shape before returning to finish by hand the depth and curvature.
When the shape was finalised, the holes were sculpted and the work finely sanded. I completed the foundation by applying a polyurethane hardener, preparing it for outside display and adding a final matt white coating.
