Beautifully painted figure and beautifully done base. I love the plants and the grass growing on the rocks.

That base is gorgeous, I really like the coloring in the display. Did you make the base?

Think we could get some detail shots

I looks great Alejandro.. I like the colors... It brings the figure to life! The base looks great too.. I like the touch of vegetation around the stone figure. Great looking!

Alejandro -

Just incredible. What a beautiful piece of art. The base itself is so detailed and well done that it could stand by itself. But then with the figure, it is stunning. Really captures so much of the Mayan culture in just this one piece. It should be in a Museum. Thank you for sharing.

Alejandro, When is your commercial line coming out? Your work is up there with the likes of Alan Ball, Christian Petit, and more who are doing aboriginal Americans.
I'm in awe!

Wow Alex, these aren't models, these are pieces of art!! I really like the sculpting, and the use of real feathers and materials. The groundwork really adds to the figures too.
