Buddha sculpture

Here is a sculpture of the Buddha. After referencing images and other sculptures of Buddha, I found that most of them were made from wood, cement, bronze and even fibre glass, but not many were made from clay. I then modeled and carved one from a lump of clay. I then made a 10 piece mould of it and slip cast it. After bisque, I painted Manganese dioxide in between the grooves on the surface to emphasize the folds and the texture on the clothing and the details in the face as well as in the sculpture as a whole. I then took it to 1080°C to harden the Manganese on the surface.
