I'm a big fan of the 1933 version of King Kong. One scene that I've always been fascinated by was when a full size mechanical bust of Kong was used to film a native struggling in the giant apes mouth. Recently I decided to recreate this scene albeit at a more modest size. I decided to do the sculpting in red stoneware clay. Here are a couple pictures of my Kong piece. Next post I'll show the mold I made from which I'll cast the finished head.
