Sculpture is all about lighting and never under estimate the importance of the title of work.

Museo Soumaya Sculpture Exhibit - post number 2

The light from the skylight was hitting this small sculpture so beautifully,

 as I got closer it just got better and better......

but when I saw the title "La noche"  - well I will never forget this piece. It is terracotta on a wooden base by Albert - Ernest Carrier - Belleuse of France c 1860

I will definitely put terra-cotta on my list of materials to explore. The texture of the clay looks like pores in her skin. The imperfections = beauty. + light + great title never hurt.
