I'm starting to very much look forward to the arrival of this piece, even though I have no idea what is in store for me. . . or it!
As is my wont, I have begun the "laundry list" of things to be done:
- The torso appears to be hollow: fill-in, and sculpt pedestal.
- Removal of the stylized crosses.
- Replace the sculpted crosses with Greek or Latin crosses, or crosses pattée.
- Decide on face to be used and enhance/modify accordingly. If I opt for the skeletal extreme, develop a suitable backstory.
