Mansa Musa, Emperor of Mali

This is a bust of the Emperor of Mali, and possibly the wealthiest individual in the history of humanity.

Rendered in Cycles with 400 samples 256x256 and Optix denoising enabled. 6 cumulative hours of sculpting start to finish. I am very proud of this work, as it’s the first bust I’ve made that actually looks good.
