Discord Statue - Draconequus - Ceramic Sculpture by MadameLeFl0ur Discord Statue - Draconequus - Ceramic Sculpture by MadameLeFl0ur
Discord Statue in glazed stoneware.

62 cm (24.4 in) high from the base to the antler.
That means that he shrunk about 8 cm (3.1 in) during firing. Poor guy.

I based him on the pose he was turned to stone in by Celestia and Luna. I had to make him kneel in order to not challenge the material and the laws of physics to much, but I think it added more power to the pose.

I’m a supporter of the Celestia/Discord affair theory so I’d like to think this pose was made during a proposal or other declaration of love for Celestia, who stone hearted gave him the cold shoulder.

This is actually the second Discord statue I’ve made. The first one had a chaos-related accident (who'd have thought?) and ended up in pieces at the bottom of the kiln.

I’d recommend to click on the “download image” button if you’re interested in some more detail.

This is AMAZING. I absolutely love the detail and thought put into it! I'm a Dislestia fan as well, and that fits the bill perfectly :3 Are you going to glaze it?

I am absolutely in love with this statue! It looks awesome. Every now and then I just go back and look at it, and jesus it just keeps getting better. I think adding the bended knee was really perfect. I don't see it as a proposal, perhaps begging her not to stone him? Either way Celestia does not come out of it well.

*grins* Oh I'm quite sure he was proposing to Celestia in that pose. He showed off the chaos he'd created, the hoards of miserable ponies tormented in unthinkable ways as he gave Celestia a psychotic smile that hinted confusingly at both sincerity and sarcasm, "I did it all for you, my love! Marry me!"

And that's when he took the magic of friendship to the knee... ;D

Nice to see some more fantastic ceramics from you. I feel like you should have saved the shattered pieces from the other Discord statue and reincorporated them into another piece, maybe a pissed off Celestia or something. Could either use glaze to fuze them or just build them into some greenware and see if they stay put.
