Brushes, Photography, Photoshop 8 Comments »

Mayan Pre-Columbian painted clay sculpture iconI just love ancient artifacts. So I was very pleased when a family member gave me the gift of a sculpture he made. It was one of a series of three sculptures, all slightly different… all excellent. The figure is a rendition of traditional Peruvian/Pre-Columbian artifacts. Hand crafted of clay and painted with gold accents, it has become a favorite item of home decor.
