Artwork Description

Ok, long story short. Here is the first of my Mabinogion Collection. Olwen (litterally "White Steps" because everywhere she walked, white flowers grew in her path) Daughter of Yspaddaden Penkawr and incidentally soon to be wife of Culwch.
Limited resin copies soon available, 2 bronze casts too... just because :p
Cherry on top of the thing, the fig got a Jury's Choice at GenCon-Indy Smile (my first prize, thanks guys !) and ended up 1st prize at the Gathering of the Fellowship, woot ! Thank you all Laughing out loud

Original in alabaster and milliput - 180 mm

This is really cool! I finished reading the Mabinogi several months ago and this is the first time I have seen anyone compose any artwork relating to it! I would love to see any other art pieces based in this literature... keep it up!

I wasn't able to go to Gen Con (Indy) this year, and having seen this sculpture on Epilogue I'm sorry I missed it. This is amazing.

Beautiful sculture - your skill is superb, particularly with the drapery and finer details - amazing work!

Y'know I think I called this Galadriel in my GenCon writeup, I'll have to correct that. This is simply a beautiful sculpture. I feel very fortunate to have been able to see this in person and also to have gotten to meet you. Congratulations, again, on your award! Let us know when the castings are available.
