Porcelain is a life-sized statue of a young girl in a very rural cemetery in New York. Who is she? Is this a likeness of the deceased in this plot? That is unknown.
This is a very well done sculpture that is enhanced by the dark century-old weathering and staining that particularly accents the hair. There is much flowing detail in the curls and folds of her gown, testament to the sculptor's skill and talent.
The image was shot in color then converted to black and white; it seemed to call for it. I then "antiqued" the image by adding a special digital weathered overlay that gives the look of an aged glass plate negative done in the Civil War era. Specifically, I was trying to recreate what's known as an ambrotype from that time, but through entirely modern digital means. She's beautiful and the antiquing project came out well.
