Study of Jean-batiste Carpeaux sulpture

Jean-Baptiste Carpeaux (May11,1827-October 12,1875) was a French sculptor and a painter, his early studies were under Francois Rude.
one of my favorites work done by Jean-Baptiste Carpeaux is known as the  " Fontaine des Quatre Parties du monde, "  the four parts of the world. Embodied by its female figures representative of  Europe, Asia, Africa and America, twisting their bodies to turn the sphere also called " Fontaine de l'Observatoire "

This monumental fountain is  located south of the Jardin du Luxembourg in the 6th arrondissement of Paris. It was dedicated in 1874

you can also see another version of it in the Musée d'Orsay,

for my studies i have chosen one of the figures of this great sculpture, it took many months to finish but i really enjoyed working on it, after cooking it i decided to give it the Patina green effect, so i used gilded gold base coat and then applied the green Patina
