The Kiss

Inspired by the beautiful painting by Gustav Klimt this has been a long time coming, but finally finished it this morning. It's twelfth scale, and completely one-of-a-kind, with hand painted silk fabric costumes, embroidered and beaded, and a base painted to compliment the costume of the man. I have chosen to have my figures stand, although I know they were kneeling before, but I liked the extra height, with the base too, which this gave as they are freestanding...unlike the original with the advantage of a background!

I have loved making this as it's been on my to do list for ages! EileenXXX
