Inside Out

This piece has been inspired by DNA and the internal and external framework of the human figure, building a construct into a spine-like structure using individual figures made in Parian and porcelain.  I again have used Parian  for it qualities to be bone-like or similar to vertebrae and also the sound and texture of the porcelain which mimics worn bone.
I have made segments of acrylic between the parian to give the space of a disc. I am looking at different figures, some of which are legless and broken, others have different limbs missing.  This reflects different disabilities and some that are physical,  while showing not all disabilities are visible.
