The Pharaoh's Daughter - The daughter of Pharaoh came down to bathe at the Nile and saw a basket among the reeds. She sent her maid to bring it to her. When she opened it, she saw the child, and behold, the boy was crying. Exodus 2:5
This is one of my favorite pieces to work on and I have a great time creating fanciful headpieces and clothing for her. The little clay basket is formed the same way I make my actual fabric baskets (www.JKTextileArts.etsy.com) only a much smaller version. The figure of the Pharaoh's Daughter is sculpted with polymer clay over an aluminum armature and mounted on a wooden base. I mix the clay colors before sculpting begins, the figure is not painted.
The wooden base measures 5x7 inches. The seated figure is 4 inches x 5 inches.
Each of my sculptures are completely unique. This one incorporates copper wire in the headpiece and in her garment.
