Well well well Mr Jenkins : this piece was even more marvelous in person . It earned its place in the journey category which is the most saturated division and category in all of nova. I absolutely love the colors in the face for one- the less vivid colors of baby blue and drab greens adds to further realism as does the wonderful textures all about the piece upon further scrutiny. Then - that base” man oh man that base is such a marvel. The highs and lows show a sense of movement and reality. Along with all the other strategically placed vegetation. No wonder why it earned top honors.
