Statue of Set Finally Done!
August 26, 2019

 

Combined throne and body are about nine inches tall (23cm)

This artwork has been a long time in coming. I made the thrones in 2017, and they came back from the foundry in 2018.

I made armatures for both Set and Horus at that time, too. For a long time, the "bony" armatures sat on their respective thrones. Finally, early this year, I faced my fear and got sculpting, at least on Set's statue.


Sans throne, he's eight inches tall from foot to tip of the ears...


Back view...


Detail of his hands and ankh...


The 6cm wide mat he sits upon...

I am so glad to have statues of both Set and Hathor now. I was worried that he might be taller than her statue. That simply wouldn't do! I needn't have worried:


Comparing their hands and ankhs...
