Portrait of RESISTANCE
Which ornaments shall I leave on her? Although an African woman I referred to for this sculpture were wearing lots of necklaces and hair ornaments, I'm leaning toward leaving this piece simple. What do you think?

Leave all the ornamentation. Africans use ornamentation and lots of color. She is strong!

Thank you, Ann. I listened to feedbacks, modified the ornamentation, and just published a photo of the final version.

Thank you, Lynnette. Although I put back the ornamentaion in my final version, I still like the simple one the best. I suppose that is how I like to dress....

Mr. Borresen, thank you very much for your suggestion. Although it is too late now as the ornamentation had been glued on the piece, it is nice to know someone who agree with my first instinct.
