From the Han Dynasty

Phase 1

From the Han Dynasty - Original pencil drawing
This drawing was made from a terracotta equestrian statue at the Minneapolis Institute of Art. 

Phase 2

From the Han Dynasty - Vector drawing formatted for engraving
I was captivated not only by the statue’s sculptural qualities but by its age and the distance it had traveled over the centuries. 

Phase 3

From the Han Dynasty - engraving on limestone
I found a piece of limestone that fit perfectly with the design. The material and composition combined to evoke a sense of age.
