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.
Spread the love and if you want to see more of the 3D sculpture work that I’ve done, please go here
