Dirisha Zuri - Nude Statuette

A 1/6 scale nude statuette of Dirisha Zuri, from the Matador novels. 

Sculpted by Xunyue Xiao, SexySculptureXXY (Etsy), of Fuzhou, China, 3D-resin printing, hand-finished and painted.


Top-lit on a CD base, to get the rainbow reflection.

Interesting. Did you buy it or just admiring it (and a little proud someone thought enough about Dirisha to do this)?

That's great work!

Seeing as "Matadora" was my introduction to the series, all those years ago, Dirisha will always have a special place in my fandom.
Thanks for sharing.

It was a commission. She stands on a rotating base, next to a floating moon lamp. Part of the deal was that I allowed the artist to offer copies (cheaper, because there were no design set-up costs) on her Etsy page. The artist prints her work in 3D, then hand-finishes and paints them too look like marble. She has quite a variety of designs, some of them pretty expensive, but I love her work.

She's got her spetsdöds on, even though she's "unclothed"! A wonderful touch! Reminds me that I should re-read the whole series soon.

And maybe I'll pick up the model. Your books have been a pivotal, eye opening, and growth-inducing part of my life, multiple times. So a physical reminder would be nice.

Of course, I'm obliged to ask, is Churl or another book in the Matador series on the horizon?

Actually, I finished the first draft of Churl this morning, it's off to a writer-friend for comments. Still be a while before it sees the light of day -- rewrites, copy-editing, like that. When it get published, it will go straight to e-book. These is a possibility of an on-demand paperback, but the jury isn't in on that yet.
