Ancient Maya female. How to know exactly from which period? Classic or Postclassic maybe, don't know. My inspiration and the references used for her come from Maya art and codex inside where so many characters are depicted. I would like to work on a female face and also on the maya culture I really like (as the whole precolombian world). I tried to include morphological specificities in the anatomy as the elongated skull very common in the maya world but its quite hard to erase his own cultural visions and easthetic ideals (especially regarding human beauty), for example the forehead would have been more flat and receding.
Hope I could sculpt other ones!
