Wax Profile Portrait of a Naval Officer by Leslie Ray, 20th Century

20th century
15 cm × 13 cm

Although he was born in 1926 Leslie Ray felt he was living in the wrong era and to counteract this he created wax profile portraits of imaginary characters of the late 18th and early 19th century. They are deftly modelled in wax and emulate ivory without threatening the suffering pachyderms. This dashing naval officer is dressed in the uniform of Lord Nelson’s time and is ready become your very own “instant ancestor”.
