Buddha Skeleton . cast resin 2008

Very much inspired by Gunther Von Hagen's BodyWorlds. The challenge was to sculpt a figure so that you could see inside the body. I made the original out of wire and aluminum foil. A thin layer of sculpey was applied to cover and define the features. I was very pleased when i finished this one. Making the mold was tricky because of the negative space in between the arms and the seated position. I learned alot from this piece and felt confident enough to start working on my next character.
