The colours used in these statues are muted and dull, which adds to the mood and atmosphere of the piece. The figures are a mixture of dirty browns and dull yellows with a hint of a pale moss-green. I think that the colours used in this piece are very effective and enhance the overall look of the statues.
A feature of the art piece I found particularly interesting was the artist’s manipulation of the human body. The figures in the piece are elongated and narrowed, which helps them to appear bony and frail, but also somewhat ghoulish. I think that this is a wonderful addition to the sculptures and it really enhances the way that the viewer perceives the figures.
