Queen Elizabeth II — the longest-serving monarch in the history of the British royal family — passed away in Balmoral, her Scottish summer home, on September 8. Following her passing, many people have paid a tribute to her; but the one that particularly stands out is by sculptor and digital content creator Joao Doce who made a mini 3D-clay sculpture of the late monarch‘s smiling face.

Captioning it, he wrote in Portuguese: “Minha homenagem à rainha,” which translates to “My tribute to the queen” in English.
