Discord Statue in glazed stoneware.

62 cm (24.4 in) high from the base to the antler.
That means that he shrunk about 8 cm (3.1 in) during firing. Poor guy.

I based him on the pose he was turned to stone in by Celestia and Luna. I had to make him kneel in order to not challenge the material and the laws of physics to much, but I think it added more power to the pose.

I’m a supporter of the Celestia/Discord affair theory so I’d like to think this pose was made during a proposal or other declaration of love for Celestia, who stone hearted gave him the cold shoulder.

This is actually the second Discord statue I’ve made. The first one had a chaos-related accident (who'd have thought?) and ended up in pieces at the bottom of the kiln.

I’d recommend to click on the “download image” button if you’re interested in some more detail.

If it's still up for sale, at 24", I would have no problem paying $40 - $50 (before shipping) for this amazing work of art.

Sorry for the incident at the bottom of the kiln. I know how much losing your work can hurt. Finished product turned out great though. :)

This is AMAZING. I absolutely love the detail and thought put into it! I'm a Dislestia fan as well, and that fits the bill perfectly :3 Are you going to glaze it?

I am absolutely in love with this statue! It looks awesome. Every now and then I just go back and look at it, and jesus it just keeps getting better. I think adding the bended knee was really perfect. I don't see it as a proposal, perhaps begging her not to stone him? Either way Celestia does not come out of it well.
