Ozymandias will be my next sculpt/cast.

Congrats to Ochoin Ceithir from the TMP page.

I expect at least 6-8 weeks to complete the cast. I will keep my blog updated with WIPs on the project.

The above is only a visual description of Ozymandias for those who may not be familiar with the Shelley poem. My sculpt will only resemble this picture in that it will have "two vast and trunkless legs".


I met a traveller from an antique land
Who said: "Two vast and trunkless legs of stone
Stand in the desert. Near them on the sand,
Half sunk, a shattered visage lies, whose frown
And wrinkled lip and sneer of cold command
Tell that its sculptor well those passions read
Which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things,
The hand that mocked them and the heart that fed.
And on the pedestal these words appear:
`My name is Ozymandias, King of Kings:
Look on my works, ye mighty, and despair!'
Nothing beside remains. Round the decay
Of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare,
The lone and level sands stretch far away".

Percy Bysshe Shelley
