Why have I been abandoned?

This piece is one of the first I’ve done in clay.i was aiming to achieve a sort of classical subject but with a certain look that provokes the audience into asking themselves I wonder what he’s thinking ? I opted for a rusty finish and left the bust in an unfinished style with the wooden cross exposed but rusted also. I was trying to suggest that this could be an iron bust that could have been buried for a lifetime then dug up rusted and aged but tactile and appealing something you would never tire of looking at. I hope you think I have achieved the brutalist look I was after.
