I've taken some creative license with some places here and there, but it's basically the same as the drawing. If I end up with some free time in the future, I'm going to make the figures to go into it, but, as it's due tomorrow and my hands hurt from x-acto'ing matboard, I believe I'm going to leave it as is for now.

This was a project in our first year at Theatre design. Myself and four others were set the task of turining Harmen Steenwyck's painting "Vanitas" into a 3D sculpture, to recreate what the artist was painting from.
We encountered some problems along the way, for example, the sword looked as if it was floating, we had to find a way to balance it to stay upright, also the painting was cheats, the book at the front wouldn't be able to be positioned as it is so we had to reinvent the shape of it to be positioned 'right' and to still have the shape of a book
