hehe Cool isn't it? A friend of mine said he stole from university. I then choose not to ask any further question, in order to stay away from the matter. But I drew it regardless.
But I think its not very difficult to find some sculptors that sells this kind of stuff for artists and art courses. Its not very expensive here. I used to go to National Portrait Museum, in London, to take pictures of the statues, and sometimes to make a quick pencil drawing. But there is nothing like having plenty of time to draw the real statue. You know how it is.
Hey, at least he didn't chop it off some ancient Greek statue. The uni can always buy another one with all that funding they get. :]
I did the museum thing for a while too, one of them here has a massive wall with 15 plaster heads, my favourite spot in the museum. A couple weeks ago I made a cast of my own hand, pretty handy for learning hand anatomy.
