Stone bust for private client


The stone bust made to order for a private client, the work of the academic sculptor Lovro Jakšić, has been completed. The work process is long and quite complicated and it consists of several stages: the first phase is modeling in clay from photographs. In this phase, the artist's art comes to the fore because it is in this phase that facial features are modeled. Only when the client is satisfied with the appearance of the model in clay, the plaster model is cast, followed by puncturing, hand chiseling and processing in the end. The bust was made in white Brač stone "St. Peter"
