Mayan Themed Wall Relief W.I.P.

I've decided to work on one of my Mayan themed wall relief designs. I'm particularly fond of this one.

The basic shape is drawn onto a piece of styrofoam and carved. Later this rough carving will be layered with a clay-like air-drying modeling compound, refining the shapes as it's being applied. Once dry, it will be rotary tooled to add in the final intricate details. The final piece will measure roughly 8" x 12".
