Le Coux Collage
Faunos are mithological creatures linked with woods and animals. Fabled creatures, half man and half animal. I wanted to grab their essence, that’s why I set it with horns, the green vest and the two branches. Snegh was born on the go, letting my hands work and my imagination run. I wanted to create a creature that protects the forets from human atrocities with a deep gaze.
The idea of a faun sculpture was born duren the TheTechnicLab course. When I was explaining how to create a character in the sculpture, I attached a goatee to another sculpture, the pirate, and a pupil said it looked like a faun. That was when I decided that my next sculpture would be a faun
Shaped in rice krispies treats (RKT) and molded in chocolate. All the face features were molded in white chocolate, and then were painted with dust colorant and a brush.

To make the branches I used a wire structure from a sugar flower. I then covered in molding chocolate.
