What appeared to be dark marks marring the surface of the "White Light" sculpture, were in fact shadows cast from a nearby light pole.

Although the "White Light" appeared realistic, the hands appeared squashed against the woman's waist.

The woman in the "White Light" sculpture looked worried and off to her left as if afraid the honeycombs behind her might attack.

A closer view of the face of the "White Light" sculpture. Notice that her eyebrows were slots carved into her face. Not a technique any human would use.
