Mary Beth- This is like finding a treasure. Its so beautiful and fasinating. The intricate details, the colors, the close up presentation is stunning. In particular I love the gold lips and then the white of the face with the lines so finely running though it. Gives it that valuable aged look.
Remarkable find and amazing camera work.
Have a wonderful day, please take care, enjoy. #7427313
