Daniel in the Lion's Den

It's Sunday, and here is one of my bible-based paper sculptures, "Daniel in the Lion's Den".  The main thing I remember about this project was the pain I endured making the stone background.  The stones were made by dripping inks and paints onto very thick watercolor paper.  After the paper dried, the stones were cut out and rounded around the edges using an embossing tool.  Much pressure was needed because the paper was so thick.  Long story short, I couldn't do any work for over a month because the nerves were damaged in my thumb.
