Made by Ina-Griet Raatz-von Hirschhausen

This Roman God Neptune stands ca 130 cm high. He is made from solid paper mache. I had to abandon the unfinished piece for 7 years. When I went back to it, I didn’t know anymore what I had in mind in terms of the base. So i put him on a heavy, ocean colored, wood filled paper mache block . The scales where cut by hand from cardboard and glued on with a glue gun. Here I learned that I is smarter to draw the position of the scale on before gluing them to achieve an anatomic correct layout.
