Sculpture: 'Bust, (Self-Portrait Commission Custom or Bespoke statue)' by Tony Mayo
Life Size Bespoke Commission Bust or Head Portrait sculpture by Tony Mayo who writes..... "Extremely accurate details, custom base hand polished with nine layers of hard wax, breathtaking accuracy, reworked to perfection and exact likeness.
I can sculpt a portrait busts of you in your likeness! Self-portrait sculptures are extremely difficult to make. Do an Internet check and you will see very few self-portrait sculptures that actually look exactly like the creator. Remember, a self-portrait sculpture is three-dimensional and the mirror the artist is looking into is two-dimensional as are any photographs, so how does the artist know how far back or how deep to sculpt various parts of his face? Also, keep in mind that when you look in a mirror the right side of your face is on the right side of the mirror, but because the head is turned around toward the artist, that eye he sees on the right side of the mirror is on the left side of the sculpture the artist is creating. Therefore, as he sculpts, everything must be flipped over in the artist`s mind. This is extremely difficult to accomplish and few people can do it. Also, keep in mind that to view difficult angles such as the side of your head or under the nose, or under the chin, or inside your ear, or behind the ear, requires the artist hold two mirrors with one reflecting off the other. There are other technical difficulties, but I`m sure you get the point. The main reason I made this sculpture is to demonstrate the accuracy with which I can sculpt a portrait. It is much less difficult to sculpt a portrait of someone else then of yourself. I can create a custom life size portrait sculpture of you, and in your likeness.

Hi Peter, The Red Kite arrived today and WOW !! Its fantastic, I have spoken to the artist today to congratulated him on his work. Its in place in our garden and my family are soooooo thrilled with it, he certainly is a clever guy and very talented. I know we will get many more positive comments throughout the summer and can only say a very big thank you for the opportunity to own something that we would not think of having. Thanks once again X,
