These are stills from a project we are working on. The current project title is ‘The Rule of Law’. The Nigerians amongst you will understand the title as will those familiar with our political terrain. This is a highly detailed 3D model of probably the most famous man in the country in the moment, President Umaru Yar’adua.
The sculpture tries to capture the immense inner pressures that come with leading

However working with EVCL director Adamu Waziri the 3D model was worked on further to get it more realistic.
