While waiting for another paper mache clay sculpture to dry, I  wondered what could be the next project to make.

While watching some documentary videos on youtube I stumbled upon an interesting film. I found out that it was a tv-series and went on to watch it.

Ragnar Lothbrok, the lead character, full of ambition yet he is grounded upon the value of family.

It was when he was made king of the Vikings that I started to sculpt his portrait bust. I referenced this sculpture from the many photos that I found on the internet.

The main features were the ponytail, long beard, and his powerful presence.
