Life size Bronze Portrait- Re-Designing the Plinth

When I met with the collector, I showed him different ways I could design the portrait and he decided on the fuller chest rather than the partial portrait suspended. After more sculpting of the figure I decided the plinth needed to be larger to balance the visual weight of the figure so I cut some plywood and hot glued it around the tile.  Then to achieve a smooth surface, I covered it with aluminim shim.
