i just love it. the layout structure is so poetic and its just too beautiful to describe in words. i love the diagonal look and the perspective feel to it. it makes it very feminine and very co-adjusting.just too beautiful. such an inspiration!

My gods...this is beautiful. Her face reminds me of Indian art, the way the lips, eyes, nose and chin are drawn. The lines and curves make me think she is part of some sort of musical instrument, like a cello, though I notice she is indeed holding an instrument, a Kokyū.

I love the flowers and the tiny, delicate details, even the texture. I also love that she looks like a deity resting peacefully amongst the lotus and leaves.

All in all, she is just lovely, you've done a great job.

I like how at first everything looks like it is made of metal but on closer examination some of the objects aren't.
