Minstrel papermache sculpture

This is a sculpture that I made a few years ago, I recently repainted most of it excepting the head and banjo because the varnish had discolored the whites on the sculpture, originally I had tried to get a water-based clear varnish but was unable to find any at the hardware so I had to settle with the ordinary shellac varnish and this has a tendency to discolor after a while or when exposed to light, so after repainting I decided to use spray clear coat as a finisher for the sculpture. This took approximately a month to create.

The minstrel as portrayed in the sculpture is a local version of the minstrel character. That has been played/ portrayed in our traditional mas, “Ole mas” at Carnival time, where people dress in costumes that has been used over the years at Carnival time from the beginning.

Who am I is one of the biggest questions that we're here to discover. I can say I am this or I am that but time changes everything, so we're always something new.
