THOMAS KUOH PHOTOGRAPHY

In December of 2008 I began work on the Maharajji Murti as a form of bakti yoga. The decision seemed simple, I had a skill, I loved Maharajji, and I didn’t see any sculptures of him that bore a resemblance. I didn’t know it would be such an amazing journey, a gift that keeps on giving. And now, years later, the journey continues. I am meeting amazing people who were with Maharajji. The tears of joy and the stories that pour out when people who know him sees the Murti has been a great surprise to me.

The following is a little biography of Maharajji, some technical information about the sculpture and my journey that lead me to him.

Portrait Bust Complete, Plus Timelapse Video

Took a while, but it’s done. I started this portrait back in February. And I finished it around Sept. The actual sculpting time was around 70 hours. The challenge was to make the subject look younger and thinner, yet exude the same expression and likeness. I am pretty happy with how it came out. The Clients liked it too.

VIDEO TIME-LAPSE

This first video, I start out by using a cardboard cut out. It’s a life size silhouette. I saw that technique on an episode of Mythbusters. It’s a great way to start quickly, getting it roughed in. Then once I have the general demensions down, I cut the clay off, and wire in some splints of wood to support the weight of the wet clay.

 

Part 2. I started to work on details. Although, I really try hard to avoid working on details till the proportions look perfect. But I had to first sculpt him in the direction of what he looks like now, before making him thinner and younger.

 

Part 3. In this video, I finish up the sculpture, dry it, hollow it, fire it and then paint and wax it. I also tried a voice over in the video just to add some explanations of what it is I’m doing. Enjoy!
