Quite a whimsical piece this, and not a style that I would normally be attracted to. However the execution of the sculpture is really very nice. Not detailed to a minute scale, but finished in a very polished and quirky way.
I love the whole balance of the piece, with the monk on one foot, the branch and the lantern, it all just works really well.
This sculpture is based on an illustration, so the sculptor Alena, known as “MumboJumbo” on Deviant Art, can’t take full credit for the design, however, to be able to reproduce the illustration so faithfully is an achievement in itself.
For more of Alena’s work have a look at her Deviant Art gallery.
