Nature Studies

This piece was inspired by Manet's famous painting "Olympia."  
The mole was sculpted using a real mole as the model.  This series explores human nature using elements of "nature."

Nature Study: Snake v. Mouse

Here is the finished piece that was inspired by a dream that I had.  My working title was "Naked Lunch" but it is up to the viewer to decide the outcome of this encounter.
