This is a replica statuette. It is about 4 inches high so you can carry it with you. I placed the item in about an inch of water, sitting on a black surface. I then lit it from behind with a flash through my light tent. There was another flash at the side pointing towards the reflector I had at the front of the light tent so it was bouncing some fill light it.

I had no idea how I was going to photograph this thing to make it look interesting. I have no clue how well it will do in voting. I could see it in the low fives, but then again I could see it in the 6's as well. It will be an interesting week!

Great composition and colour choices. Simple and elegant.

I really like this photo. The uneven tonality of the purple background really complements the texture of the figure. The Venus of Willendorf would be proud.
