the top arm is a separate piece that starts just past the wrist into the hand, and at the shoulder. note how I had to file back the hand and hair to get this to fit for the expanded foam mistake.
On the lower figure, the hand and arm are free from the hair- this was an important decision when creating the piece- sacrificing the flow and elegance of the sculpture by connecting the hand to the hair would have made for an easier mold and a simpler casting process.

The next two show how much wider the expanded foam took the figure- the second shows the figure as it should be, with the calipers showing the extra width of the sub-par casting. the remaining images show a similar gap.
