So for the first time ever, even though I am a born and raised Southern Californian, I had never been to LACMA until a few weekends ago.
I generally don’t pay much attention to statues/busts/etc, not for any particular reason except that I just don’t often find one that pulls my eye, but something about this one in particular caught my attention and I just looked at her for minutes and minutes, staring at the intricate detailing.
So this is Fantasy Bust by Albert-Ernest Carrier Belleuse, using Terracotta. Maybe it was because it was in a different medium than stone I was interested? Proof again also that you don’t always need to travel far to find something new and exciting to experience!
