I added a new piece to the Shrine on Wednesday. My Supergirl maquette statue based on the Superman/Batman:Apocalypse movie arrived at my comic book store this week.
What a great statue. I think it shows a pretty and graceful Supergirl.
She is sort of in a ballerina type pose, her foot en pointe. I like how her back leg is tucked behind her. At first I was unsure of the angular way her arms are positioned, but I think it works. In the end, I think she is supposed to be coming in for a landing from flying.
The statue is supported by a metal peg in the foot inserted into the base. I was hoping it would go all the way in to the toe, but instead there is some peg showing. The peg is thin, so it gives some illusion of her floating. A large portion of the peg is in the base so it seems secure.
There is a sort of kinetic feel to the statue as well with her leg behind her, her cape and hair flowing.
I think the look of the statue captures the look of the Kara animated in the movie nicely. It clearly has an essence of Michael Turner without being overly stylized like Turner's work could be.
It really is a slick statue and the first of several upcoming additions to my collection. Once I get the others, I'll rearrange the whole collection and post. But this was very very nice.
