Before I started on making the 8 ft by 4 ft Angel of the Nativity, I did a study for the piece in clay measuring 2 ft by 2 ft. 

While I did not think it was just right for the final piece, I found it had great artistic merit on its own and had castings made from

it as well as Christmas cards from some of the studies done from it as well.

across (about 3.5 cm)
