Excellent choice of development. Was this at a street fair?

Hi,
Thanks for the comment. No it was not on a street fair. This staute was on a street corner (very much on a permanent basis) where people would present their respects, in the way they would do to any other catholic saint. In fact just a couple of blocks away there as another statute.

Cheers,

Marcelo

Amazing work, I almost thought that this was a piece of digital art! Very misleading in a good way though. Keep up the good work!
