I have always loved the wooden icons that you see in museums.   So this was my attempt at recreating them in a more modern style.    The face is sculpted in a more naturalistic style, but I kept the painting in a deliberately “chalky” range to mimic the gesso-ish painting of the originals (without the shine – which I’m not so keen on).
