Nice aside glance at the audience. Her thoroughly deadpan expression really drives the exasperation in that line, as if she's had to make this disclaimer one too many times before.

@melaredblu: Yes, she had to explain it quite often, as it is a common misunderstanding of a gorgon's motif.

Admission So she admits that she's essentially a hack.

@Zixinus: Not at all. The petrification only works with living objects (in fact only with vertebrates),so there's nothing to be done about it. Of course she could sell the statues as nudes, which isn't a problem as artistic nudity is accepted in pharaonic egypt, but in some cases it wont go with the asthetics.

@SPG: You misunderstand. My point isn't that she doesn't do the clothing on the statues, my point is that she doesn't do any actual sculpting at all.

She essentially just uses the dead bodies of whoever she had to kill (which must be alarmingly high if she can make a living off this), then have the clothes (and probably whatever they hold) added by another person.

Compare to an actual sculptor that works from a big bit of rock and carefully chips out everything. Or even using clay or wood.

At least, so far there hasn't been much of a hint that she does actual sculpting the regular way.

Ah, I see, there is the problem. She didn't claim to be a traditional sculptor. She is a professional petrificator. And of course, it needs some aesthetic skill to get the right time and right pose, as it is impossible to correct anything if the first stare gets wrong. Actually, it is the difference between artistic photography and painting.
