Minas Tirith Book Sculpture 1 by wetcanvas Minas Tirith Book Sculpture 1 by wetcanvas
Minas Tirith from "The Lord of the Rings". This was a commissioned piece. Quite honestly, I was absolutely terrified of making this one and I'm sure I hyperventilated more than a few times. Once I had it hollowed out, it sat on my dresser for a week before I had the nerve to start it :/ Probably the most detail I've ever had to fit in to such a condensed space. Because of the detail the sculpture is fairly heavy. All of the rings had to be reinforced with card stock and cardboard to prevent a cave in. The "rock" texture is paper mache. While I couldn't fit the entire King's castle, I did mange the face of it along with the statues, fountain, garden, tower and tree.

I'll post another photo for ring detail.

This is absolutely astounding!!! I am in love with it! You have some serious skills to be able to create this!!! Could I maybe use this as the profile picture for a community a friend and I are making on FanFiction. We would credit you, but if you would rather we didn't that's perfectly fine too. Either way, your art in amazing!! You should be proud!

Absolutely fabulous--best papier mache project I've seen in ages.  I love the idea of a 3-dimensional structure growing out of the pages of an actual book!
