This is the third revision of a portrait of my sister.  I began this portrait with two modeling sessions in 2005.  I then cast the sculpture and pulled another clay from the mold to which I added revisions in a third modeling session.  Yesterday I pulled the dry clay portrait from the shelf, glued the cracks, added a base and recast the portrait.  These are photos before casting.
