Introduction: The Female Christ, Sophia

This is the Gnostic personification of wisdom, based on the image on the front of a book im currently reading, called "JESUS AND THE LOST GODDESS". Ive included pictures on different textured backgrounds to give a varied comparison of setting.

Its made from a marvel legends psylock figure with a loin cloth fashoned from the belt/sash then glued onto a cardboard ankh (or cross ansata) then sprayed up with plasticoat brass, and the ankh, hair and loincloth were touched up with antique gold enamel paint.
it looks great as a stand alone wall hanging or Gnostic centre piece on an altar.

People who thinks this is disrespectful or shameful are not nice. And I'll flag you as such. (I already did)
