Hello ! I'm back on Sola after a few months away from social media.

Here is a little statue I started a few days ago.

Thanks ! I'm not in high school anymore, I'm now doing art studies and I have a class dealing with the representation of the human body in art, and this week's topic is "Le corps contraint" wich approximately translates in "The body constrained". My inspirations for this topic are the artificial cranial deformations performed by the Paracas people and then the Nazca people ( https://link.springer.com/article/10.1007/s00381-004-1127-8 ) and by the Burgundians ( https://scholar.google.fr/scholar?hl=fr&as_sdt=0%2C5&as_vis=1&q=burgundians+cranial+deformation&btnG=#d=gs_qabs&u=%23p%3DkzuK_1-gH58J ). My statue represents a baby from a (fictional) people that practices artificial cranial deformations and that also performs artificial deformations on other parts of the body and especially on their limbs. This people does these deformations thanks to strongly and tightly banded ropes or bandages. They tighten the bandages with time (like a corset) to create unusual forms on the body. Sometimes, when they tighten the ropes sooner than needed, the limbs can turn gangrenous and have to be severed. (I will paint it and add the ropes/bandages later.)

Gwenn ❓, now I understand the general form, really looking forward to seeing the finished sculpture. Have you also seen the "giraffe" women?

Escape, Yes, I read articles about the Padaung, but it's sad to see that they became a touristic attraction now that people know more about them. 😐

Even the travel agencies are having a moral issue about including them in the tours.

It (she?) is adorable. It reminds me of someone I met once.

I'm glad to hear that ! 😊 I just started sculpture and I really love it, so I think I will do as much sculptures as possible now ! I'd love to see your mom's sculptures ; they must be full of passion : you seem so nostalgic about it 🙂

Gwenn ❓, we don’t have many left. If I find some photos I’ll post them. Maybe they can even inspire you a little?
