Goddess Under Glass

This is a project that has been sitting on my worktable forever waiting to be finished.  The overall size of the piece is 6” tall by 2 ¾” wide.  I added decorative paper to the base which also helps to keep the glass dome in place.
The glass dome is removable.
The columns are made of resin. I broke one of the columns apart to give the scene the appearance of a crumbling temple.  The acrylic sprays are colored with alcohol inks.  The green moss is a product called Flower Soft.  The green man plaques around the base are made of clay.  I used a brass green man piece to make a mold and then used the mold to make 4 paper clay plaques. 
I reversed the image of the goddess so it looks the same from the back or the front of the piece.

Very cool Laura! What a great idea for the broken columns and molded pieces - this looks like it was a lot of fun to create!

Love it Laura! I have been debating if I should order the resin columns.
This would be perfect for them!!!
