I attached the two feathers to the head with wire . Still debating whether to let them swing free or to glue them in place. We'll see how it goes after the painting is finished. I made a mistake when cutting the bottom of the blank which resulted in a steep angle. So, thinking what the hell, I just cut a matching angle on the piece of walnut and it turned out more interesting than it would have. The discoloration on the tips of the robe is where I soaked the areas with super glue to give it some strength.
Anyway, hope you like him so far and your comments are welcome and appreciated. More photos in the gallery.
