Dance of the Twi’lek Slave Girl
I started this figurative sculpt in 2007 as a part of ballerina sculptures series. She stayed unfinished for some years, then I realized that she is supposed to be a Twi’lek, and suddenly it all made sense.
” Twi’leks (pronounced /’twilɛk/) were an omnivorous humanoid species originating from the planet Ryloth.
Their distinctive features included colorful skin, which varied in pigment from individual to individual, and a pair of shapely prehensile tentacles that grew from the base of their skulls.
The beauty of female Twi’leks was well known throughout the galaxy, and as a result many young Twi’leks were sold into slavery, becoming dancers. “
