Jungfrau vs Jungfrau

by Julia Troyke

The hands begin to imitate a Madonna figure with butter. It is a long process and requires a lot of concentration to roughly imitate the model. Again and again you can see how the hand strokes the butter to get the elongated shape of the figure.

Then the hands make an effort to depict details such as the Madonna’s face and veil. In the end, it remains an approximation, a failed attempt.
