Sometimes we just need a break from painting. In art school there was always a funny tension between painters and sculptors, although I can't tell you why!
Here are some works that represent Marie Antoinette in various mediums: marble, stone, terracotta etc. They really are quite lovely, and the likenesses are intriguing. I am particularly taken with the hairstyles!
The first image below includes both carved pearls and feathers, and I also admire the detail in the necklace with a miniature of Louis XVI on it!
