Sharing the characteristics of Hellenistic sculpture, Kneebone retains the purity of the glazed white surface while the tonal chiaroscuro enhances the intricately modeled ruptures and crevices that inject this conventional material with a sensual physicality and unique energy.  photo tumblr_m7iqo9zjOZ1rsmleno1_1280_zpsb8d96258.jpg  photo tumblr_m538omV7TC1qeju05o1_1280_zpsa38f7bb4.jpg
