Artwork Description: This is one of the silhouette series. The steatite body has subtle variations that add interest. The black and white striped alabaster head is partially in a raw state and partially polished. The white face is the stone sanded to 220 grit to help to emphasize the features and make it pop. The rest of the body is sanded to 1500 grit. It is part of the silhouette series where I combine a rough partially in ruin side of the face with a more fully developed sculpted body. two stones are joined to create the unusual effect.
