Raiders of the Lost Ark Fertility Idol by Utukki-Girl Raiders of the Lost Ark Fertility Idol by Utukki-Girl
My first attempt at carving sculpture, this is the Chachapoyan Fertility Idol from Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark.  My 6 year old son wants to be Indiana Jones for Halloween, so I made this for him to carry around trick-or-treating.  He wanted me to dress up as a boulder and chase him around all night, but that's too much even for me.  :)  

I made this by gluing two blocks of balsa foam together.  I carved out the sculpture, painted it with sealant (balsa foam is extremely porous), a layer of acrylic paint, and then gold leaf paint.  The nose is too long, and the mouth too small, but not bad for a first sculpting attempt, I think.  It was fun enough I think I will definitely do it again, but perhaps with less ugly subject material.
