buddha sculpture

In the lap of the Gods

I like working in 3D but I don’t often get the chance to do sculpture commercially. The case of the Buddha came about when decorating a Thai restaurant in Mijas Pueblo, Costa del Sol. I heard the owner complaining that he couldn’t get a big bronze Buddha from Thailand in time for the inauguration of the restaurant. I offered to build him one… he accepted.

The sculpture was built of plaster on an armature and then finished with a faux bronze patina. The faces of the Thai workers in the restaurant lit up and, I have to admit, I was blown away when they started praying and decorating Buddha’s space.
