This reminds me of the medieval paintings, where they would incorporate a flat halo behind religious figures, such as Jesus and Magadalen. After the Renaissance in Italy, we see less and less of the flat halos (especially in contemporary art, but I could be wrong. It's not like I've seen every piece.). So, I really like how rendered this piece as such - combining old elements with 'new' elements.

The piece itself is over all very stunning. The likeness is uncanny.

That's really nice work. Typically, at least in my opinion, dark skin is infinitely more difficult to render, but you did a lovely job.
