Richard Williams described proper art as being very like sculpture. This is kind of what I think he meant (and not in that it looks like stone) in that it has great depth and the shapes feel like you carved out detail. I don't know why but the face and the hair have this a lot more than the neck. And I feel bad criticizing that, because honestly it's better than what I make. It really is excellent. and the snakes are a very fun detail.
