This two-headed chimera is a gothic creature that can be found on Rouen Cathedral in France. It can also be found in a great book called Pugin’s Gothic Ornament. I modeled it in clay first, in low relief, or bas relief.  It is about a half inch at its deepest. I then made a plaster waste mould and from that mould I produced a plaster cast. (You can see the various stages in the below photographs) These sorts of creatures beg the question: where does architectural stone carving end, and sculpture or art begin?
