I started from a small sketch. You can easily cheat with small sketches,
which is not the case with sculptures, or at least it's rare.
( I'm thinking of "l'éternel printemps" by Rodin in which the
woman's leg is not in the axe of her body, but nobody notices it...)
A teenage girl is sculpted in the core of this square pillar, although
she is not a contortionist, the girl's position, is very close to the
pillar's shape close but not similar, some parts are lacking in the
back and the toes.
This cariatid, a little melancholy,
has not at all any feature of its
antique model of sculpture
Neither its strength nor its assurance.

Do you want to go back
towards the workshop of the sculptures ?
