About this project

The first of the Goddesses is a wall hanging bronze sculpture based on Hypnos the Greek God of sleep in the British Museum. My ceramic version was three times life sized so to reduce this face to life sized she was first 3D scanned reduced and printed, before having a silicon mold made for the lost wax casting process. The patination makes her look like a marble statue coming to life with the tawny owls wings those from the Eastern Mediterranean. One wing enfolding the face further evokes sleep.
